Infrastructure Support

The authors of this report note that there is a deficit in resources to effectively support public health’s foundational capabilities, and thus the health of our communities. The authors outlined a list of investments needed to ensure all health departments or regional partnerships have these capacities met. The authors recommend creating a Public Health Infrastructure Fund to ensure all departments invest in health tracking/assessment, hazard preparedness, communications, policy development, community partnership development, organizational competencies, and performance management.
