Li, Jennifer MHS; Dawson, Becky MPH

Partnership and collaboration are hallmarks for the National Environmental Public Health Tracking Network (EPHT) Program. When CDC issued its first request for proposals}?> for EPHT in August 2002, it required formal collaboration between state public health and environmental protection agencies. In addition, each of the grantees assembled a planning consortium or technical advisory committee to aid in the creation of the National EPHT together with local health agencies, community groups, industry, and healthcare professionals and other organizations. Partnerships have resulted in actions that protect and monitor public health; substantial the development and use of state and national tracking networks; and increase collaboration and information sharing.
