The Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB) released an updated "Guide to National Public Health Department Initial Accreditation," which was adopted in June 2015 and includes many policy and process revisions. Many of these revisions will go into effect Feb. 1, including a shorter time frame for submitting applications to PHAB, and only requiring health department directors to certify at the time of application that the department has an adopted and current community health assessment, community health improvement plan, and department strategic plan. Previously, the health department was required to submit these documents.
