Infectious Disease Prevention and Control


NACCHO is strengthening local health departments' capacity to respond to and control infectious diseases. Cases or suspected cases of new and emerging infections are likely to appear in community hospitals, private provider offices, and community health centers, making local health departments frontline responders. Approaches to preventing infectious disease or controlling its spread depend on identifying causes and understanding how they can most effectively be addressed.

 
In the Spotlight
LINC

Through support from CDC, NACCHO is pleased to offer the LINC (Lessons in INfection Control) Initiative funding opportunity for LHDs. NACCHO will award at least 10 LHDs up to $25,000 each to improve both healthcare and community infection control and enhance coordination for preparing and responding to Ebola, healthcare-associated infections, and other emerging infectious diseases through strengthened local public health organizational and administrative capacity, expertise, and partnerships with key stakeholders. Applications must be submitted by February 5, 2016 at 5:00 pm PST; view the Request for Applications (RFA) to learn more.

NACCHO hosted an informational webinar for potential applicants on January 8. Listen to the audio from the webinar and view answers to frequently asked questions about the RFA.
