The mission of the Education & Outreach Office of the Boston Public Health Commission’s (BPHC) Infectious Disease Bureau is to ensure that Boston residents have the necessary information to protect themselves from communicable diseases. Infection prevention requires that comprehensive, linguistically, and culturally appropriate information is readily available.
Awardees must adhere to the Intervention Specific Standards.

Best Practices Meeting
Each year, the Education and Outreach Office convenes a "Best Practices" meeting with its Funded Agencies to discuss, share and brainstorm agency experience with a particular topic in hopes of developing "Best Practices". For FY 17, the topic was "Supported Referrals". Agencies shared how they define "supported referrals" as well as their process for making, confirming, tracking and documenting these referrals. Notes from the meeting can be found by clicking here.
