To maintain accreditation status, the health department will be evaluated against a set of national standards 5-years after accreditation status has been awarded. Reaccreditation ensures that accredited health departments continue to evolve, improve, and advance their public health practice to serve their community.
The Standards & Measures document serves as the official standards, measures, required documentation, and guidance blueprint for PHAB national public health department reaccreditation. The Policy presents the process for maintaining accreditation status.
Understanding the potential impact of the accreditation program may help the health department engage all staff in this transformative effort. Learn about the impact of accreditation.
