What do you think are the 10 Essential Public Health Services? The Public Health National Center for Innovations (PHNCI) wants to hear from you.
PHNCI is partnering with the de Beaumont Foundation to review and possibly revise the 10 Essential Public Health Services. The Futures Initiative: Revisiting the 10 Essential Public Health Services, is aimed at bringing the Essential Services national framework in line with current and future public health practice.
To understand how the field views and uses the 10 EPHS, PHNCI and the de Beaumont Foundation are engaging in a series of data collection efforts to solicit input from the field, including live crowdsourcing and other in-person events, an online questionnaire, key informant interviews, and a virtual townhall series.
PHNCI and the de Beaumont Foundation will be hosting one townhall event per month between September and November 2019. These events are open to anyone wishing to listen and provide feedback and the agenda will consist of polling and facilitated dialogue around the 10 Essential Public Health Services.
