Cross-Jurisdictional Sharing, Reimagined
A Message from the Director of the Center for Sharing Public Health Services
May 2021 — Since 2012, cross-jurisdictional sharing (CJS) has been the cornerstone of the Center’s work. CJS remains at the heart of our work today, and it’s with excitement that I share the work we have been doing the last few months to reimagine what CJS looks like in the current public health landscape. This Director’s Message breaks down changes to our CJS model and the work we do at the Center.
In Nevada, an agreement between Douglas County and Carson City Health and Human Services, which began providing inspections in Douglas County, generated a strong environmental health services program that benefits both jurisdictions.
Nine counties in the southern tier of New York discovered the value of developing detailed supporting documents to ensure smooth and efficient operations when their mutual aid agreement was activated.
Washington State Department of Health Immunization Program staff worked closely with the local health jurisdictions throughout the state to redesign program administration and enhance program integrity.

COMPASS is an interactive online tool that walks through the step-by-step process of exploring, planning and implementing CJS arrangements. It follows the three phases of the Roadmap but dives deeper into each, providing additional resources such as videos, charts, surveys and timelines to help break down each phase into smaller sections.
