Technical Assistance Opportunity: State Medicaid and Public Health Collaboration to Advance the CDC’s 6|18 Initiative
CDC’s 6|18 Initiative offers a unique opportunity for Medicaid and public health officials to collaborate on prevention interventions that improve health and controlled costs. It focuses on high-burden health conditions (e.g., tobacco use, asthma, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and inappropriate antibiotic use) that affect large numbers of people, are associated with high costs, and can be prevented or controlled.
With support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Center for Health Care Strategies and the Association for State and Territorial Health Officials are inviting Medicaid agencies and public health departments to indicate interest in receiving technical assistance to implement interventions under CDC’s 6|18 Initiative. This technical assistance opportunity builds on two previous years of engagement with 15 states, the District of Columbia and Los Angeles County, California.
