From the Editor
The March-April issue of the Journal of Public Health Management and Practice focuses on “New Challenges Facing Local Health Departments” and is accompanied by a Supplement “Environmental Public Health Tracking”, sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Guest Editors of the supplement are Alex Charleston and Holly Wilson of the CDC and Greg Kearney of East Carolina University. The March-April Issue that addresses challenges now confronting local health departments covers a wide range of topics including barriers to accreditation; evidence-based decision making; succession planning and leadership; political influence on funding decisions; quality improvement and results of a national survey of capacity for emergency preparedness. The issue closes with our regular News from NACCHO column: Ebola as a Case Study: The Role of Local Health Departments in “Global Health Security.” In public health practice, surveillance is necessary to measure the health of the population and determine action to protect and promote community health. The tracking program described in the supplement on “Environmental Public Health Tracking” highlights the work of CDC and state and local partners to collect, integrate and analyze data from environmental hazard monitoring. Resulting human exposure and health effect surveillance are reported through the National Environmental Health Tracking Network. The articles in this Supplement are relevant to understanding the links between environmental hazards and chronic diseases, which currently account for 7 of 10 deaths in the United States.

Four articles on immunization information systems have been published ahead of print (PAP) by the Journal of Public Health Management and Practice. Two of these articles report the findings of a recent systematic review by the Community Preventive Services Task Force.  A third article, a Practice Brief Report, provides “Recommendations for use of Immunization Information Systems to Increase Vaccination Rates.” A fourth article, from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention, by Daniel Martin “Immunization Information Systems: A Decade of Progress in Law and Policy” is a study of laws, regulations and policies governing Immunization Information Systems (IIS), also known as immunization registries.
