Public health readiness: state accreditation grant renewed
Posted: 07th Dec 2012
The voluntary accreditation of state and local public health departments is a program initiated in 2011 in support of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) efforts toward a national, cooperative program called "Strengthening Public Health Infrastructure for Improved Health Outcomes." The goal is to help the American public health infrastructure become better prepared for the challenges facing today's society, from chronic disease, infections and illness to bioterrorism, food safety, environmental issues and other man-made threats.
