NACCHO’s Project Public Health Ready Recognizes 26 Agencies

Jul 30, 2020 | Beth Hess

NACCHO’s Project Public Health Ready (PPHR) is pleased to recognize 26 agencies from eight states for their ability to plan for, respond to, and recover from public health emergencies. Five agencies from Missouri, Texas, and Utah received first-time PPHR recognition and 21 agencies from Florida, Louisiana, Michigan, Tennessee, and Virginia received PPHR re-recognition status.

PPHR is a criteria-based training and recognition program established by NACCHO and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to help local health departments (LHDs) develop core public health and emergency preparedness competencies. The PPHR program is an intensive 18-month process that provides LHDs the structure to build training and preparedness capacities using a continuous quality improvement model. Those who successfully complete the program are PPHR recognized for five years.

Congratulations to the following agencies who were recognized:

All recognized LHDs now have a written comprehensive all-hazards response plan that aligns with the highest national and federal standards. Through the process, LHDs had an opportunity to build partnerships with local, state, and federal leaders, community response partners, and other stakeholders; and facilitate collaboration and team building across the entire health department.

More information about the PPHR program can be found on the website. Agencies interested in applying for PPHR can contact PPHR staff at PPHR@naccho.org.
