For health departments that are preparing to apply for accreditation, PHAB recommends working diligently on the following:
Review PHAB’s Online Orientation to Public Health Department Accreditation. While this review is required for the Accreditation Coordinator and the health department director, it contains great information that health departments can share with their staff, boards of health, elected officials, and community partners as they prepare for accreditation.
Appoint an Accreditation Coordinator and department-wide team for review of the process, standards, measures, and documentation guidance, as well as the identification of documents.
