Governance report : National Public Health Performance Standards Program
Description:The National Public Health Performance Standards Program (NPHPSP) is a partnership initiative established in 1998 to improve the practice of public health, the performance of public health systems, and the infrastructure supporting public health actions. To accomplish this mission, performance standards for public health systems have been collaboratively developed. These standards represent an optimal level of performance that needs to exist to deliver essential public health services within a public health system.
The NPHPSP is led by the Office of Chief of Public Health Practice, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Collaborative partners in establishing and supporting the NPHPSP are the: American Public Health Association (APHA), Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO), National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO), National Association of Local Boards of Health (NALBOH), National Network of Public Health Institutes (NNPHI), and the Public Health Foundation (PHF). In addition, eight state public health agencies (Florida, Hawaii, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio, New York and Texas) and hundreds of local public health agencies within these states worked with their system partners to assist in testing and developing the state and local assessment instruments. The governance instrument was tested by boards in Minnesota, Mississippi, and Massachusetts.
