National Partners

The US public health system is most effective when government teams up with national nonprofit organizations to address emerging epidemics, develop the public health workforce, communicate public health information, translate science to practice, and evaluate effective public health services.

National public health partners with their memberships and associations have the reach, influence, access, and capabilities for an effective public health response. A key role for national public health partners is to provide capacity-building assistance to ensure a capable and efficient public health workforce.

CDC’s Office for State, Tribal, Local and Territorial Support (OSTLTS) works with national nonprofit organizations to build the capacity and infrastructure of public health agencies and systems.

OSTLTS coordinates several initiatives that serve this purpose; among these is a partnership initiative entitled “Building Capacity of the Public Health System to Improve Population Health through National, Nonprofit Organizations.”
