A Collaboration of 10 Organizations Joining Forces to Strengthen Public Health in Colorado
Colorado Public Health Standards are PHAB Standards
In a great step forward for public health in our state, on Tuesday January 22, the Colorado State Board of Health promulgated a state rule to define the Colorado Minimum Quality Public Health Standards as the Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB) Standards. This means that local public health agencies will use PHAB Standards to think about and evaluate their work.
This rulemaking involved a statewide effort wherein state and local public health agency leaders and staff agreed upon the decision to use the PHAB Standards. This rulemaking could not have been completed with out the hard work of the Standards Workgroup comprised of state and local public health professionals, with oversight from the Public Health Improvement Steering Committee and staff support from the Office of Planning and Partnerships, along with the local public health directors and local boards of health.
The following documents were submitted as part of the rulemaking process:
