Development of an Operational Community Health Observing System for the Gulf of Mexico States
November 14-16, 2018
Core Area 4
This workshop centered around developing the framework of an operational community health observing system to serve the Gulf of Mexico states. This system will aim to 1) guide health first-responders and public health actions following future disasters, both short- and long-term, 2) use relatively quiescent periods between disasters for monitoring, recovery support and follow-up, and adaptive improvement of the observing system, 3) continuously collect data that informs future planning and action.
