The Regional Network Coordinating Organization (RNCO) is a component under the Core State Violence and Injury Prevention Program (SVIPP) funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and is led by the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. The purpose of the RNCO is to provide structured coordination to all states within Federal Health and Human Services regions III and V, to increase competency, increase regional sharing of data and best practices, and increase research-practice collaboration to support and enhance resources for and sustainability of injury prevention programs.
The objectives of the RNCO are as follows:
- To strengthen national and regional coordination of injury and violence prevention efforts through information exchange and multisectoral cooperation.
- To leverage resources for injury and violence prevention.
- To support assessment of the magnitude of injury and violence within states and the region and the development, implementation and evaluation of data-informed policy, programs and organizational practices.
- To facilitate and support dissemination of best practices in injury and violence prevention.
- To promote state and regional capacity development in injury and violence prevention.
The RNCO is governed by a Terms of Reference Agreement.
Composition: The Great Lakes and Mid-Atlantic (GLMA) RNCO general membership is comprised of Regions 3 and 5 injury and violence prevention organizations and individuals.
The RNCO is governed by a Strategic Advisory Board (SAB) comprised at a minimum of state health department injury directors (designees), Injury Control Research Center directors (designees), chair of established Injury Community Implementation Groups (ICIG) (formerly ICPG) in the region, and the Midwest Injury Prevention Alliance (MIPA) president.
The RNCO will develop a National Peer Learning Team (NPLT) and a Regional Peer Learning Team(s) (RPLT). The vision of both the NPLT and RPLT is to move injury and violence prevention forward by informing and sharing the best available evidence from science, program, practice, and policy.
RNCO includes the following 12 states:
Region 3: Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Washington D.C., West Virginia.
Region 5: Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, and Wisconsin.
RNCO Meetings are held monthly via conference call. Calls are held on the last Thursday of every month. During calls, either a presentation is given by select members or a guest, and/or discussions are held on specific violence and injury prevention topics based on the interest of members. The SAB meets at least once per year in person. In-person meetings may be held in conjunction with other CDC meetings or regional meetings and training, or as separate events.
