Back to Georgia PBRN Page


The Georgia PBRN Quick Strike project examines the cost and service delivery variation of STD/STI programs in Georgia. The relationship between service delivery costs and outcomes is evaluated with the degree of IT & HR system centralization, county health department jurisdiction size, and responsiveness of local community governance. The study results will be compared with that of the RWJF funded Florida Delivery and Cost Studies on STIs, as they relate to centralization versus decentralization of service provision and information systems, as well as policy and practice implications.
