Southern Regional Health
The Southern Regional Health Consortium (SRHC) is an
outgrowth of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundationfunded
Southern Rural Access Program. The SRHC's
members include agencies and organizations from
eight southern states who are interested in further
pursuing the understanding and developing of
solutions addressing health disparities and poor access
to healthcare created by a variety of economic,
social, educational and health delivery system
barriers, among others.
RWJF has made $600,000 available to provide start-up
support for the development of a regional forum to
continue work on the access issue through the sharing
of best practices, technical assistance, data/policy
analysis and other core functions. The eight states
have devoted considerable energy and made
significant progress in developing an effort known as
the Southern Regional Health Consortium.

Consortium, please read the article in the July
2004 issue of Rural Health Connections (PDF).
