I’ve was in DC much of last week working alongside many of the health officers from the 10 US Mexico border states. We had meetings with the U.S.-Mexico Border Health Commission as well as events associated with Border Binational Health Week. Border Bi-national Health Week is just one of the initiatives of the Commission- whose goal is to promote sustainable cross- border partnerships to address border health challenges. Outcomes include increased community and inter-agency networking relationships, information sharing and educational opportunities, and awareness of the and other state and local initiatives. I thought his would be a good week to write a few posts about some of our successful border public health initiatives.
