OSTLTS Cooperative Agreements and Partnerships

The US public health system is most effective when the federal government teams up with partner organizations to address emerging outbreaks and other natural or man-made disasters, develop the public health workforce, communicate public health information, translate science to practice, and evaluate effective public health services.

Public health partners have the reach, influence, access, and capabilities to coordinate an effective public health response and to strengthen public health systems and services . A key role for public health partners is to provide capacity-building assistance to ensure a capable and efficient public health system and workforce.
