Accreditation and Multi-Sector Contributions to Population Health Activities

Local Health Departments (LHDs) undergoing the Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB) process engage with a number of public health systems partners to satisfy accreditation standards and pre-requisites. In addition, the accreditation process positions LHDs to more effectively deliver core and foundational public health services due to PHAB’s emphasis on core public health activities. This results in the development of more comprehensive public health systems with multi-sector partners, delivery of a greater variety of services, and more organizations engaged in the services delivered. This project studies differences in comprehensive public health system structure including the involvement of multiple sector partners, and the effectiveness of the services delivered, comparing LHDs that have achieved PHAB accreditation and those that have not.
