Accreditation and Preparedness

The CDC’s Center for Preparedness and Response and Center for State, Tribal, Local and Territorial Support developed a crosswalk that highlights the links between CDC’s public health preparedness and PHAB accreditation.

The document illustrates alignment between:

  • PHAB’s Standards and Measures version 1.5 for voluntary accreditation of state, tribal, local, and territorial public health departments; and
  • CDC’s 2018 Public Health Emergency Preparedness and Response Capabilities: National Standards for State, Local, Tribal, and Territorial Public Health

The crosswalk can help health department preparedness and accreditation staff demonstrate specific examples of preparedness activities that help fulfill accreditation objectives and strengthen crosscutting health department performance improvement efforts.
