This issue brief explores successes and challenges experienced by public health practitioners in early SIM states. It is designed to assist state officials designing and implementing SIM plans in effectively working with public health practitioners. When developing this issue brief, APHA first reviewed SIM plans and testing proposals of states to identify plans with strong public health components. To provide real world context to SIM development and implementation, APHA conducted key informant interviews.
