Project Details


Supporting the Western Region of the Network for Public Health Law 2015 - 2017 Western Region Public Health Law Program Law is a highly effective tool to promote and protect the publics health, but many officials, practitioners and decision-makers lack access to necessary public health legal expertise. The Western Region Office (WRO) of the Network for Public Health Law proposes to continue leveraging its expertise and strong standing in the public health law community to support those working to improve the publics health through law. Over the next two years, the WRO will further enhance the Networks ability to raise its profile and provide expanded areas of expertise, assistance, resources and leadership in using law to improve population health. The WRO will achieve these objectives through collaborations with key public health law associates and others, production of practice-based publications, public health law training through conferences, presentations, and webinars, and fostering relationships with multi-sector partners. Providing real-time, reliable and objective guidance on a vast array of public health law topics across multiple jurisdictions entails risks and challenges. WRO personnel manage and oversee their Network activities through regular updates, constant education, personal contact with requestors, and significant checks and balances in its operations to protect against risks. Our approach is designed to assure the delivery of the highest quality information in response to requests. Through collaborative efforts the success and long-term sustainability of the Network and the WRO can be assured.
