Turning great ideas into healthier communities

Project

Public Health Delivery and Cost Studies in the San Joaquin Valley of California

Project Director(s)

Dawn Jacobson

This project aims to identify and compare the costs of delivering three public health services (TB surveillance and investigation, child immunizations and community needs assessments) in four rural local health departments (LHDs) in the San Joaquin Valley. It will compare the methods and costs of delivering these services, disseminate the information to LHDs throughout the valley, and enhance the workforce capacity of the LHDs to integrate cost analysis into their operations.
