Local Health Department Infrastructure Study (1999-2000)

In August 1997, NACCHO received a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to conduct a nationwide study of local public health infrastructure. One of the project’s objectives was to generate synergies with existing data sources, such as the NACCHO Profile, and programs, such as MAPP and Turning Point, to create a useful and relevant resource on local public health systems.

The study allows comparisons of local health departments (LHDs) to the nationwide picture, can be used to educate others on LHDs, and highlights LHD strengths and challenges.

Data for the Local Health Department Infrastructure Study (1999-2000) can be found on the University of Michigan’s Institute for Social Research, Health and Medical Care Archive.
