Accredited Health Departments


On May 17, 2016, PHAB awarded five-year accreditation status to 17 state and local public health departments. Since the launch of the national accreditation program in 2011, 134 public health departments and one integrated local public health department system have achieved accreditation through PHAB. The recent accreditation decisions mean that the transformational benefits of being served by a PHAB-accredited health department are now reaching 167 million people, or 54 percent of the U.S. population.

The May decisions bring the number of PHAB-accredited state health departments to 19 and the number of PHAB-accredited local health departments to 115. In all, 42 states plus the District of Columbia now have PHAB-accredited health departments within their borders.
