3. Local Public Health System Assessment (LPHSA)
The Local Public Health System Assessment (LPHSA) answers the questions, "What are the components, activities, competencies, and capacities of our local public health system?" and "How are the Essential Services being provided to our community?"
The assessment involves the use of a nationally recognized tool called the National Public Health Performance Standards Local Assessment Instrument. The Local Instrument Version 3 and supporting materials are available here. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
The LPHSA is a broad assessment, involving all of the organizations and entities that contribute to public health in the community.
