Back to Grantee Profiles


This study compares North Carolina’s four different types of local public health delivery systems: single county, multi-county, authority, and consolidated human services. The team will analyze the laws that govern the four models as well as qualitative data related to the development and perceptions of the models and quantitative data tied to selected health status and service delivery outcomes. The project will inform state and local policymakers as they consider significant changes to the state’s public health delivery system.
