PHAB is pleased to announce the release of the Guide to National Public Health Department Reaccreditation: Process and Requirements. This Guide presents the official requirements and process for the reaccreditation of public health departments. The Guide pertains to accredited health departments that submitted their application for initial accreditation on or before June 30, 2016.
Many accreditation organizations repeat the initial accreditation requirements and process for reaccreditation. However, PHAB determined that simply repeating initial accreditation would not continue to advance public health departments.
PHAB reaccreditation builds on initial accreditation, but is very different. Both the requirements and the process for reaccreditation have been designed to ensure that accredited health departments continue to evolve, improve, and advance, thereby becoming increasingly effective at improving the health of the population they serve.
