In recognition of the changing nature of public health practice, the Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB) is working with the public health field to develop a new version of the accreditation standards and measures. This next version will be called Version 2022 and will include revisions to both initial accreditation and reaccreditation standards and measures and the accreditation/reaccreditation process. Changes in the standards and measures will be informed by a number of inputs to ensure that the new requirements reflect the feedback we have heard from the field.
On September 14, PHAB released a draft of Version 2022 for feedback. After nearly 8 weeks, we have closed that public vetting period. We appreciate everyone in the public health field who provided comments. Your input is crucial to ensuring that Version 2022 reflects the changing landscape of public health practice. We are currently reviewing that feedback and using it to further revise the accreditation requirement sin conjunction with the Accreditation Improvement Committee.
