Coordination Strategies Handbook - A Guide for WIC and Primary Care Professionals
The Coordination Strategies Handbook project is funded through a grant from the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS), U.S. Department of Agriculture. The Bureau of Primary Health Care (BPHC) and the Indian Health Service (IHS), Department of Health and Human Services, cooperated with FNS at the Federal level to develop the handbook.
The project was undertaken in response to a mandate of PL 103-448, the Healthy Meals for Healthy Americans Act of 1994. The Act stipulates the increase of WIC services at community and migrant health centers (C/MHCs), especially new health centers, and improvement of coordination of WIC services at IHS clinics. Among the activities undertaken in response to this mandate is the development of this handbook. It is intended to serve as a reference tool for local agencies, as well as a source of inspiration, in pursuing coordination and collocation efforts.
