  • Description:
    The goal of the national accreditation program is to protect and improve the health of the public by advancing the quality and performance of all public health departments in the country—local, state, territorial, and tribal.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Office for State, Tribal, Local and Territorial Support (OSTLTS) and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) support the implementation of a national voluntary accreditation program for state, tribal, local, and territorial health departments. The Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB), a nonprofit 501(c)3 entity, serves as the independent accrediting body. The accreditation program was developed with significant participation from national, state, tribal, and local leaders. The program launched on September 14, 2011, and the first health departments were accredited in February 2013. PHAB announces new cohorts of accredited sites each quarter.
