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.
Standards & Measures Version 2022 will use the 10 Essential Public Health Services as its framework, and will highlight which measures correspond to the cross-cutting skills and capacities listed in the Foundational Public Health Capabilities. Health equity will be emphasized throughout the Standard & Measures.
Version 2022 of the PHAB Standards & Measures is now available for feedback. Your input is crucial to ensuring that Version 2022 reflects the changing landscape of public health practice. Review the Standards & Measures and share your feedback on the Vet Version 2022 webpage.
