Public Health Accreditation and Quality Improvement

Increasing the effectiveness and efficiency of the public health system infrastructure is critical to ensure the health and well-being of Oregonians. Quality improvement and performance management are principles and practices used to promote operational excellence and strengthen the public health system.

Building on these concepts, the Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB) has launched a national, voluntary accreditation program for state, local, territorial and tribal public health departments. The goal of accreditation is to improve and protect the health of every community by advancing the quality and performance of public health departments.

These resources are provided to assist state, local, and tribal public health professionals in learning about quality improvement and accreditation.
