Encourage or support investigations, research, or studies designed to identify, evaluate and monitor, on an ongoing basis, health problems that affect the general population in the United States-Mexico border area;? Encourage or support binational public-private efforts to establish comprehensive and coordinated systems, which use advanced technologies to the maximum extent possible, for gathering and monitoring health-related data for border areas;?

Additional Information on Eligibility
This is a single-eligibility cooperative agreement offered to the Arizona Department of Health Services/Office of Border Health; the California Department of Public Health/California Office of Binational Border Health; the New Mexico Department of Health/Office of Border Health; and the Texas Department of State Health Services/Office of Border Health. The offices of border health in the four U.S. border states have extensive past experience in working with the USMBHC and in supporting its binational goals, objectives, and initiatives. The four state offices of border health also have an existing working relationship and ongoing initiatives with Mexico through the appropriate outreach office(s) on the Mexican side of the border. The USMBHCs establishing legislation calls for close coordination and integration with each of the four state offices of border health, whereby these offices serve as support components and conduits for distribution of information on USMBHC priorities, initiatives, and activities in each of the U.S. state border regions. Continuity and consistency in this binational effort within the border area is essential to the productivity and success of public health efforts in this region.
