At the Arizona Falls Prevention Coalition we believe that preventing falls and fall injuries in the elderly is achievable with the right information and an increase in public awareness. Our three Regional Chapters, representing Northern, Southern, and Western Arizona, liaise with local partners locally to further our mission.

Many people think falls are a normal part of aging. The truth is, they're not. Most falls can be prevented—and you have the power to reduce your risk
Our calling is to prevent falling! Developed to promote evidence-based falls prevention approaches, the Arizona Falls Prevention Coalition (AFPC) helps coordinate existing efforts, provides technical assistance and increases the opportunities for older adults to enhance their quality of life. The Coalition provides education and information to help older adults in Arizona improve their flexibility and balance, reduce their fear of falling, and decrease the likelihood of a fall.
