Leveraging CIE for Public Health Needs and Response
Leveraging CIE for Public Health Needs and Response explores the current state of public health data infrastructure and how the CIE model can inspire public health to adopt a more community-driven approach to data infrastructure that supports cross-sector information sharing and is truly responsive to community needs. Like many sectors that operate within systems that have perpetuated or exacerbated racial inequities, public health is reckoning with ways to better gather and interpret data to actively address structural barriers to health.
Historically, public health systems have not been held accountable for the harm disproportionately shouldered by racial/ethnic minorities and other under-resourced populations. In keeping with its goal of prevention and protecting the health of people and communities, public health should employ community-driven strategies to develop a data infrastructure that supports cross-sector information sharing and is truly responsive to community needs.
