Standard 1.4: Policies and programs based on public health data


 

Return to domain 1

Standard 1.4: Provide and use the results of health data analysis to develop recommendations regarding public health policy, processes, programs, or interventions

The development of public health policies, processes, programs, and interventions should be informed by the use of public health data. Data should be shared with others so that they can use it for health improvement efforts.
