The State of the States: 2011 Report highlights results from the Safe States Alliance 2011 State of the States survey, the only national assessment of capacity among state public health injury and violence prevention programs in the United States. The survey provided essential information based on the five core components identified by the Safe States Alliance as critical to the development, growth, and sustainability of innovative and effective state IVP programs. They included: * Building a solid infrastructure; * Collecting and analyzing data; * Designing, implementing, and evaluating programs; * Providing technical support and training; and * Affecting public policy. This webinar conveyed: * Key findings from the 2011 report, including the most up-to-date and comprehensive information about the structure, organization, people, resources, and work of state injury and violence prevention programs; and * Comparisons to trended data from the 2005, 2007, and 2009 surveys in order to highlight changes and achievements accomplished by state injury and violence prevention programs over time.
