MAJOR RESEARCH PROJECT:

Border Vision Fronteriza - The U.S.-Mexico Border Health Collaborative Outreach Demonstration Project:

The Rural Health Office of The University of Arizona received a contract from the Health Resources and Services Administration of the U.S. Public Health Service in 1995 to support the development and implementation of already established border models and, or other models to be adapted along the border area.

Ultimate Goal: To develop effective community-based health outreach models that can be replicated in both rural and urban areas throughout the target region - the U.S.-Mexico borderlands.

Objectives: a) To organize four Mini-Forums in four border cities (one for each border state) for the identification of outreach models that increase access to health care services; b) To implement the identified outreach models in four pilot border cities; and to evaluate project process and outcomes while the project lasts.

Target Population and Region: The population of the U.S.-Mexico border that resides within a radius of 62 miles or 100 kilometers north/south of the international line between the United States and Mexico. (Project support must be limited to activities which take place on the U.S. side of the border.)

Expected Outcomes: Based on the identification of health problems and solutions along the U.S.-Mexico border and the implementation of four outreach demonstration projects that work; the Border Vision Fronteriza project will provide tools for policy planning, definition of priorities, consolidation of resources, and redirection of existing activities to improve the health of border populations.

STUDENT OPPORTUNITIES THROUGH RESEARCH:

Experience with U.S.-Mexico border health, rural health and health policy issues through the Southwest Border Rural Health Research Center. Participation in rural clinical settings in Mexico and Arizona. Exposure to health policy concerns at the state, national, and international level.

SPONSORED RESEARCH THROUGH MSRP:
