_The purpose of SIPHC was to form a professional association comprised of health agencies throughout Southern Illinois. To apply for funds, grants and other resources in order to provide more and better health services to the population of Southern Illinois.
Membership of the Southern Illinois Consortium is comprised of public health agencies in the lower 1/3 of the State of Illinois. Through membership, public health agencies receive numerous benefits. They have the opportunity to network with related health professionals, apply for regional-based grants and funds that may not have been available to individual agencies, share vital information on best practices, and have a voice in current legislation as it relates to public health. Membership is not limited to local health departments, nor is it confined to a specific geographical location.
