Accreditation Preparation and Support

Overview

The voluntary national public health accreditation program through the Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB) aims to improve and protect the health of the public by advancing the quality and performance of state, Tribal, local, and territorial public health departments. More than half of the U.S. population is now served by a PHAB-accredited health department.
 
The Public Health Foundation (PHF) offers accreditation-related support in each of its focus areas, including accreditation-related on-site technical assistance. This support falls mostly under Domain 8 and Domain 9 of the latest PHAB Standards and Measures, which serves as guidance for health departments preparing for accreditation. Choose a focus area below for more information on how PHF can assist your accreditation preparation and support efforts:
