Overview of urban collaborative initiatives


Rather than focusing on priority setting and strategies in a particular urban environment, this paper overviews various types of collaborative strategies that the medical and public health sectors are using in cities around the country to identify and address urban health problems. These strategies were identified as part of a study of 414 cases of collaboration; the study was recently conducted by a group of distinguished scholars and practitioners at the New York Academy of Medicine and was funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and was supported by the American Medical Association and the American Public Health Association. The results of that study were published as a monograph, Medicine and Public Health: The Power of Collaboration, in December 1997.1
