Multi-jurisdictional service sharing (MJSS) has emerged as a strategy to address the growing challenges for local public health agencies to deliver essential services in the face of reductions in financial support and/or requirements for accreditation. This session will feature highlights of recent research conducted in Colorado, Massachusetts and Georgia which shed light on the process of developing, implementing, and improving MJSS approaches. Brief presentations will be followed by large and small group discussions about the trend towards MJSS for local public health improvements, legal and financial considerations, and lessons learned from development of MJSS arrangements.
