3 A Framework for Public Health Law Defining Public Health Law ate statutory definitions of public health vary extensively: arrow view: Promoting the public health of the community includes preventing disease or controlling the communication of disease within the community. (New Jersey)

(Kentucky)
5 A Framework for Public Health Law Defining Public Health Law uties of Public Health: The department shall continually and diligently endeavor to prevent disease, prolong life, and promote the public health through organized programs, including prevention and control o environmental health hazards; prevention and control of disease prevention and control of health problems of particularly vulnerable population groups; development of health care facilities and agencies and health services delivery systems; and regulation of health care facilities and agencies and health servic delivery systems to the extent provided by law. (Michigan)
6 A Framework for Public Health Law Defining Public Health Law Public Health is what we as a society do collectively to assure the conditions for people to be healthy (IOM, 1988). Public Health Law is the study of (1) the legal powers and duties o the state to assure the conditions for people to be healthy (e.g., t identify, prevent, and ameliorate risks to health in the population and (2) the limitations on the power of the state to constrain the autonomy, privacy, liberty, or other legally protected interests o individuals for protection or promotion of community health.
7 A Framework for Public Health Law Defining Public Health Law 5 Essential Characteristics of Public Health Law: 1. Government: Public health activities are the primary responsibility of government; 2. Populations: Public health focuses on the health of populations; 3. Relationships: Public health contemplates the relationship between the state and the population; 4. Services: Public health deals with the provision of public health service and 5. Coercion: Public health possesses the power to coerce the individual fo the protection of the community.
8 State Public Health Systems Organization Common Features of State Public Health Systems: Concentration: Nearly every state concentrates their core public health powers into a few state agencies: Virginia Department of Health Virginia Department of Environmental Quality Virginia Department of Agriculture Distribution: Beyond this concentration, most states also spread public health responsibilities to multiple other state agencies. Oversight: Although their use and influence has declined in the past tw decades, state boards of health and state health officers (commissioners secretaries) are still prevalent.
9 State Public Health Systems Organization 4 Organizational Structures for the Allocation of Core Public Health Functions: Superagency Systems Collaborative Systems Embedded Systems Freestanding Systems
10 State Public Health Systems Organization Superagency Systems Core public health functions are the responsibility of a single, comprehensive health department the superagency that has virtually complete authority to create and implement public health policies and programs. States that feature superagency systems (Tennessee) may allocate some public health-related functions (e.g., mental health programs) to agenci outside of the superagency s direct control, but an overwhelming major of core public health functions are performed within the superagency.
11 State Public Health Systems Organization Collaborative Systems Core public health functions are the responsibility of multiple divisions under the control of a larger health agency Each division within the larger agency fulfills one or more of the defined core public health functions. The major distinction between the collaborative system (Virginia) and the superagency system lies in this subdivision of responsibilities within a collaborative agency.
12 State Public Health Systems Organization Embedded Systems Embedded public health systems differ from collaborative systems becaus they rely upon a single public health division within a larger health department for the fulfillment of most core public health functions. Core public health functions are embedded within a division of a larger department responsible for the state s health activities instead of being directly implemented by a department of health (North Carolina).
13 State Public Health Systems Organization Freestanding Systems Characterized by the fulfillment of nearly all core public health functions a freestanding public health agency which is not under the direct contr of a larger health department. A freestanding public health agency s responsibility is limited to the fulfillment of core public health functions (Alabama).
14 State Public Health Systems Distribution 3 Distributive Approaches Governing the State and Local Relationship: Centralized ( top-down ) Approach Decentralized ( bottom-up ) Approach Hybrid Approach
15 State Public Health Systems Distribution Centralized ( top-down ) Approach State public health agencies have extensive legal and operative control over local level public health authorities (e.g., Virginia).
16 State Public Health Systems Distribution Decentralized ( bottom-up ) Approach Local governments are allowed significant control and authority over local public health responsibilities (e.g Oregon).
17 State Public Health Systems Distribution Hybrid Approach Some public health responsibilities are provided directl by the state while others are performed primarily by local governments (e.g., Alaska).
18 State Public Health Systems Financing Public Health Systems State Funds (41-50%) Federal Funds (32%) Local Funds (12%) Fees, Reimbursements, Other (10%)
19 State Public Health Systems Financing Public Health Systems Sources of state funds for public health include: General revenues pursuant to state budget requests; Specific set-asides based on ad valorem (real property) taxes, product sales taxes (e.g., tobacco), or generated fees; State grants for need-based local initiatives, including matching grants; Emergency appropriations from general revenues; Fee-based programs; Superfund-styled assistance accounts; Other expenditure funds (e.g., tobacco settlement funds); and Reimbursement authorizations.
20 State Public Health Systems Financing Public Health Systems Sources of local funds for public health include: State distributions from general revenues of other resources; Local revenues generated from specific ad valorem, insurance, o other taxes; Fines and fee-based services of public health departments, clinic or laboratories; Issuance of municipal bonds or other securities.
