To assure effective societal action to protect public health, Implementation Teams must be established to support the development and services of Community Health Teams in neighborhoods and communities across the country. Purposeful, active, and effective implementation work (making it happen) is done by Implementation Teams. The functions of the Teams described here are required to establish or sustain a healthy, functioning society. Once in place, the teams stand ready to take on current and future challenges. COVID 19 is used here to illustration the separate, but dependent functions of both teams.
