Planning to Strengthen Local Public Health Systems: The Big Cities Experience

In 1998, 14 states and 41 localities were awarded Robert Wood Johnson and W.K. Kellogg Foundation funding to establish partnerships with the goal of transforming and strengthening state and local public health infrastructure. Over a two-year period, grantees convened multidisciplinary partnerships and engaged in a variety of planning processes that would result in the development of strategic plans for public health system improvement. This panel presentation will describe the different planning processes used in Chicago, New Orleans, and New York City. The presenters will also address the unique challenges of public health systems planning in big cities and share lessons learned from the experience. Suggestions will be provided for how other large metropolitan areas might proceed with future planning
