CDC’s Regional Networks
Regional Networks work with public health offices and injury and violence prevention programs to build awareness of risk factors, prevention strategies, and best practices.
The Southeastern and Southwestern Injury Prevention Network is funded by the Division of Injury Prevention within the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The CDC funds the Core State Violence and Injury Prevention Program (Core SVIPP) to 23 state health departments. This funding provides states flexibility to implement, evaluate, and disseminate injury and violence prevention strategies. One of the key efforts of the Core SVIPP program is to fund a state health department to coordinate networking and capacity-building opportunities among their neighboring states.
Five states are funded to coordinate activities. These are the Regional Network Coordinating Organizations (RNCOs).
