The Center for Sharing Public Health Services is a place for communities to learn how to work across jurisdictional boundaries to deliver essential public health services. Known as “cross-jurisdictional sharing,” this approach involves public health officials, policymakers, partners and other stakeholders interested in improving effectiveness and efficiency. The Center is funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and is managed by the Kansas Health Institute. learn more ›
The Center has two main goals. Its first goal is to build evidence related to cross-jurisdictional sharing. It does that, in part, by working with the Shared Services Learning Community. These 16 teams in 14 states act as a learning laboratory by providing real world experiences that the Center can collect and analyze. Its second goal is to use that evidence to produce tools, methods and models to assist public health agencies and policymakers as they consider and adopt CJS approaches. learn more ›
When it comes to working across jurisdictional lines, partners come from many walks of life. Policymakers at the local and state levels, public health practitioners and public health administrators are key players in successful cross-jurisdictional sharing. If you represent one of these sectors, we offer a “Quick Links” section designed specifically for you and the unique role you fill in this journey. learn more ›
