Achieving health equity requires building more comprehensive systems. Using data from a nationally representative cohort of U.S. communities, this session will explore the characteristics of Comprehensive Public Health Delivery Systems, the structures and processes needed to build such systems, and the health and economic benefits attributable to these systems.

Learning Objectives:

  • Compare innovative ways to structure local health departments that maximize resources to enhance service delivery to the community.
  • Discuss ways local health departments can build strategic alliances to implement successful collaborations that address health threats in the community.
