About Us

South Central Public Health Partnership
The South Central Public Health Partnership is an ongoing collaboration with the vision of a prepared public health workforce able to perform the essential public health services and respond to natural disasters, infectious disease outbreaks, bioterrorism, and other public health emergencies. Public health practitioners and academics in Alabama, Louisiana, and Mississippi collaborate to provide training opportunities tailored to the unique needs of the region through onsite courses, web-based courses, satellite broadcasts, conferences, and joint training activities.  All training programs developed and delivered by the South Central Partnership are available free of charge.  

An Advisory Board coordinates strategic planning, program development, operations, and governance for all Partnership programs to avoid duplication of effort, to optimize resources, and to facilitate consistency across projects. State and local partners fund programs by direct financial and in-kind support in addition to grants from the
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Health Resources and Services Administration.


The South Central Public Health Partnership is supported under cooperative agreements from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) grant 1U90TP000400-01, the Department of Health and Human Services Health Resources Administration (HRSA) grant UB6HP20201 and the Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) grant 3B01DP009002-11W1.
