Accreditation Efforts in Georgia: A Technical Assistance Observational Study
Achieving national public health accreditation status from the Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB) is becoming increasingly popular among the nation’s public health agencies. According to PHAB, the goal of such accreditation is “to improve and protect the health of the public by advancing the quality and performance of Tribal, state, local, and territorial public health departments.”1 As of April 1, 2015, there were 26 states (plus the District of Columbia) with accredited public health agencies and 17 states with 1 or more agencies in the application process.1 Georgia is 1 of the 17 states with multiple public health agencies working towards achieving voluntary, national accreditation.
