Colorado Opportunity Framework

Colorado Department of Health Care Policy & Financing


Many Coloradans face roadblocks that keep them from having the opportunity to be healthy, economically-secure members of society. 

The Colorado Opportunity Framework takes a prevention-based approach to identify and remove these roadblocks so that Coloradans can succeed across the life-span.

The goal is to deliver evidence-based initiatives and community promising practices that remove roadblocks for all Coloradans, so that everyone will have the opportunity to reach and maintain their full potential.

The Opportunity Framework

The Opportunity Framework covers nine life stages from family formation to end-of-life. Within each life stage, a series of indicators serve as benchmarks or metrics for success.
