ALABERT LOPEZ, Marc; ARBUSSA REIXACH, Anna  y  SAEZ ZAFRA, Marc. Interadministrative collaboration for public health management in municipalities with less than 10,000 residents. Gac Sanit [online]. 2016, vol.30, n.6, pp.480-482. ISSN 0213-9111.

This study analyses which administrative body local councils use to carry out their basic public health responsibilities. The study sample includes data from municipalities with less than 10,000 residents, which we believe is a first for studies published in academic journals in Spain. The data used was obtained by means of a survey administered by trained personnel. 93.7% of all the municipalities in the province of Girona, the area under study, responded to the survey. The analysis shows that there is a statistically significant difference between municipalities with more and less than 10,000 residents with regards to which administrative body local councils use for managing public health responsibilities. The results of this study suggest that in the ongoing debate over the streamlining of local government, the current situation regarding public health responsibilities in municipalities with less than 10,000 residents needs to be taken into account.
