This Article is substantially based on a report prepared by the authors for the
Alaska Division of Public Health as part of Alaska's Public Health Improvement
Process, supported by a state grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
and individual grants from the W. K. Kellogg Foundation awarded to various
Alaska communities. See Lawrence 0. Gostin & James G. Hodge, Jr., Reforming
Alaska Public Health Law, A Report for the Alaska Public Health Improvement
Process (1999) (on file with authors). The Robert Wood Johnson and W. K. Kel-
logg Foundation's joint initiative, Turning Point Collaborating for a New Century
in Public Health, provided technical support for state and community public
health partnerships. The Alaska Division of Public Health was awarded a Turning
Point grant to conduct a statewide, collaborative study of the current public health
system, and to develop and recommend strategies to strengthen the system. As
part of this initiative, the authors' report assessed and reviewed laws supporting
the public health system in Alaska. The report proposed reforms to improve both
state public health laws and relationships among public health actors at the fed-
eral, state, local, and tribal levels of government.
