Southern Regional Health Consortium

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.
