Expanding and Enhancing Federal, State, Tribal, and Academic Partnerships to Advance the Field of Maternal and Child Health
Collaboration is the foundation for producing sound programmatic and scientific work in public health. As far back as the late 1800s, when the field of public health was in its infancy in the United States, collaboration and partnership among existing agencies including the American Public Health Association, Congress, state and city boards of health, and state legislatures provided the basis for development of fundamental policies including sanitation, the standardization of laboratory methodologies, vaccination protocols, and implementation of quarantine measures during disease outbreaks [1, 2]. In the mid to late twentieth century, international eradication of smallpox and in the early twenty-first century near global eradication of polio announced by agencies included in the World Health Assembly are examples of how collaboration in science and medicine impact health at the population level on a large scale [3, 4].
