- Conduct a landscape analysis of current community and state partnerships that seek to improve health outcomes and reduce disparities, both rural and urban, including those of states and regional consortia; selected NIH ICs such as the NIMHD, the Association of State and Territorial Health Officers, the HRSA Office of Rural Health Policy, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the multi-funder BUILD Health Collaborative. A total of 500-1000 current partnerships is expected, few of which will have existing research connections.
- Share this list with the CTSA Program Consortium, requesting addition of missing programs, notation of existing research relationships, and removal of programs that have sunsetted
- Provide examples, tools and guidance to CTSA Program hubs and to community, state and national partners about opportunities for working together.
- Track the number of already existing research partnerships.
