Public Health 3.0: Creating a 21st Century Public Health Infrastructure
Earlier this year, Karen DeSalvo, Acting Assistant Secretary for Health with the US Department of Health and Human Services and partners hosted a series of listening sessions that invited public health leaders to imagine Public Health 3.0. Key themes identified in the discussions included a focus on leadership and workforce development, cross-sector partnerships, flexible and sustainable funding for health, data for decision-making and investment in public health infrastructure.
Public Health 3.0: A Call to Action to Create a 21st Century Public Health Infrastructure is a primer that summarizes the wisdom gathered during these thoughtful dialogues. The primer also poses forward looking recommendations to engage local community members as agents of change for health improvement. LPHI is excited to join the Public Health 3.0 movement with local Chief Health Strategists and community members to create improved conditions of health for all.
