The Public Health National Center for Innovations (PHNCI), a division of the Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB), was launched in November 2015 with the goal of fostering alignment and spreading innovations in public health practice. A component of this work is the support of a learning community comprised of three pilot states (Ohio, Oregon, and Washington) as they implement the Foundational Public Health Services (FPHS) model. FPHS is a conceptual framework intended to describe the minimum package of public health services (including the cross-cutting capabilities and core public health programs) that must be available in state and local health departments everywhere, for the health system there to work anywhere. More information about FPHS and the national FPHS model are available here.

This survey is intended to assess the overall understanding of and interest in FPHS, as well as its relevance to the field as a conceptual framework for public health transformation. The information collected through this survey will be one input into PHNCI’s decision making around how to advance the FPHS model nationally.
