Comparing the 10 EPHS to Other Frameworks

The 10 Essential Public Health Services alignment documents demonstrate the relationship between the 10 EPHS and other frameworks.

The Public Health Accreditation Board's (PHAB) Standards and Measures are based on the 10 Essential Public Health Services, and used as a guidance to public health departments seeking accreditation. Since they were created, and have been updated, more recently than the original EPHS, they already include many of the same elements as the revised Essential Services, including a focus on organizational infrastructure and increased focus on equity. The revised 10 EPHS will be incorporated into PHAB's Standards and Measures Version 2.0. The key concepts and clarifications of the refreshed Essential Services Framework—especially the centrality of achieving health equity—will underpin Version 2.0, for which development is underway.
