The City of Nashua Division of Public Health and Community Services is on the way to achieving accredited status from the Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB).
What Accreditation Means
Accreditation is the mechanism that assures stakeholders, partners, and clients that an organization is providing quality services and strives towards a culture of improvement.
Health Department Accreditation
Health department accreditation is a voluntary process that began in 2011. As time goes on, it is most likely that accreditation will become a national public health standard and become a channel for additional funding opportunities.
Benefits Benefits of working towards accreditation include:
Enhancing public health departments and public health infrastructure
Increasing accountability and credibility
Strengthening of public health services and programs
