Applicant Eligibility
The Mississippi Department of Health / Mississippi Delta Health Collaborative is uniquely qualified positioned to carry out the activities outlined in this FOA because: -- To meet Congressional intent detailed in the FY 2015 Appropriations language, CDC needs to continue supporting the Mississippi Department of Health / Mississippi Delta Health Collaborative's work related to policy, systems, and environmental approaches, as well as community-clinical linkages for the prevention and control of chronic diseases, such as heart disease and stroke. -- The Mississippi Department of Health's mission is to promote and protect the health of the citizens of Mississippi. In addition, The Mississippi Department of Health is designated as the sole and official agency to administer and supervise all health planning responsibilities for the state, as established by Section 41-7-171 et seq., of the Mississippi Code 1972. Therefore they are uniquely qualified to identify those areas of greatest need in the state; develop strategies to reduce barriers and deficiencies in the state's public health care system; and establish policies to encourage the provision of appropriate and quality care in the public and private health care system. Through its program, the Mississippi Delta Health Collaborative, reach of the Mississippi Department of Health is further extended to address health issues of rural areas of the state (i.e., the 18-county MS Delta Region). The MS Delta Region bears a disproportionate burden of heart disease and stroke, and related conditions as compared to the rest of Mississippi and to the nation. -- Mississippi Delta Health Collaborative has provided leadership and coordination of heart disease and stroke prevention and control efforts in communities across the MS Delta Region. Also, by directly engaging, and providing funding and technical assistance to community organizations to promote coordination of public health efforts, the Mississippi Delta Health Collaborative is poised to expeditiously and successfully implement strategies related to policy, systems, and environmental approaches; health systems; and community-clinical linkages to prevent and control heart disease and stroke in the MS Delta Region
Beneficiary Eligibility
The ultimate benefits of this program will be received by the general and priority adult populations in a local, rural area of Mississippi (i.e., the MS Delta Region) who have high blood pressure, and experience health disparities associated with high blood pressure. Priority adult populations are those adult population subgroups in the MS Delta Region who experience racial/ethnic and socioeconomic disparities, including inadequate access to care and poor quality of care. Strategies related to the prevention and control of heart disease and stroke will be implemented and tailored to meet the unique local needs of the MS Delta Region and to achieve the greatest impact.
