2006-2007 Demonstration Sites:

Integrating Public Health All-Hazards Preparedness

and Public Health


 
   

Overview of Demonstration Sites

NACCHO initiated this Preparedness Integration Demonstration Project to build local health department (LHD) capacity. NACCHO funded six LHDs to improve their integration efforts around traditional public health activities. The LHDs will disseminate information about their methodologies, performance measures, collaborative strategies, and lessons learned to other LHDs. The goal of the project is to enhance collaboration with internal and external partners to develop and implement a plan for integrating preparedness efforts within public health departments.
