Public Health Infrastructure and Systems

Every tool and resource it takes to keep your local health department running.

Local public health infrastructure includes the systems, competencies, frameworks, relationships, and resources that enable public health agencies to perform their core functions and essential services. Infrastructure categories encompass human, organizational, informational, legal, policy, and fiscal resources.

NACCHO's infrastructure and systems programs create tools to build local health department infrastructure and systems; collect, analyze, and disseminate knowledge and insights from demonstration and pilot sites; lead trainings, informatics, and MAPP; and conduct research to strengthen local health department infrastructure by informing public policy and identifying needs.
