Five Key Aspects of Public Health
The previous set of Standards was structured

reflected in the numbering sequence of the
Standards and the 2005 reports.

Standards One and Two

    critical health services are collected, tracked,
    analyzed, and utilized along with review of
    evidence-based practices to support health policy
    and program decisions.
  • Communication to the Public and Key Stakeholders
  • Public information is a planned component of all
    public health programs and activities. Urgent

    and clearly.

Standards Three and Four

    development of collaborative partnerships address
    community health risks and issues, prevention
    priorities, health disparities and gaps in
    healthcare resources/critical health services.
  • Monitoring and Reporting Threats to the Publics
  • A monitoring and reporting process is
    maintained. Investigation and control procedures
    are in place and actions documented. Compliance
    with regulations is sought through education,
    information, investigation, permit/license
    conditions and appropriate enforcement actions.

Standard Five

    critical health services. Public health provides
    a vital service in this partnership process by
    analyzing state and local health data.
  • Program Planning and Evaluation

    specific goals, objectives, and performance
