In 2018, the County Health Rankings & Roadmaps program highlighted medical-legal partnership (MLP) as an intervention working to improve health in local communities. The profile reviewed the existing evidence base for MLP services, its impact on disparities and examples of implementation.
The annual County Health Rankings measure vital health factors, including high school graduation rates, obesity, smoking, unemployment, access to healthy foods, the quality of air and water, income inequality, and teen births in nearly every county in America. The accompanying Roadmaps provide guidance and tools to understand the data, and strategies that communities can use to move into action. The County Health Rankings & Roadmaps program is a collaboration between the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute.
