Project Public Health Ready

Project Public Health Ready (PPHR) is a criteria-based training and recognition program that assesses local health department capacity and capability to plan for, respond to, and recover from public health emergencies. PPHR aims to protect the public's health and strengthen the public health infrastructure by equipping local health departments with sustainable tools to plan, train, and exercise using a continuous quality improvement model.

Since 2004, more than 500 LHDs have been recognized as meeting all the PPHR requirements individually or working collaboratively as a region, all of which are identified in the map below.

Interested agencies are encouraged to browse the featured resources listed below and to contact NACCHO's PPHR team via email at PPHR@naccho.org for more information about initiating the application process.
