This project evaluates the relationships among public health, primary care, and policy intermediaries who work collaboratively to reduce injury-related infant mortality rates in U.S. communities. By identifying the characteristics of Arkansas partnerships that can more effectively and efficiently mobilize injury prevention strategies and reduce injury-related infant mortality, this study helps determine how to maximize resource sharing and promote enhanced learning among collaborative partners.
