Contents Notes
"The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) commissioned an environmental scan to gain a better understanding of the issues involved in creating formal, collaborative relationships between local health departments in different communities. The research project is led by Patrick Libbey, former National Association of County & City Health Officials (NACCHO) director, who has completed one round of interviews and site visits with public health leadership around the nation and is planning a second round. More specifically, Libbey and his colleagues are talking with two groups of stakeholders: 1) executive leadership and key staff at national public health and policy-maker organizations, such as NACCHO, the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the U.S. Conference of Mayors, the National Governors Association, etc.; and 2) state and local public health leaders and local policy-makers in seven states where some communities have experience with cross-jurisdictional relationships between local health departments."
