The National Public Health Performance Standards (NPHPSP) was established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and its partners to provide a framework for building public health partnerships and improving the performance and quality of public health systems. This presentation will address the role of the NPHPSP in informing and developing state and community health improvement plans. State and community health improvement plans serve as foundation for effectively working as a system to address health priorities and improve the public's health. Within a health improvement planning process, the NPHPSP may be utilized by state and local communities to collaborate with public health partners, working more effectively as a system, and accomplish more with less while improving the quality of public health. The NPHPSP's role in engaging and strengthening public health system partnerships while preparing for and maintaining agency accreditation will also be highlighted. The future role of the NPHPSP will also be discussed, highlighting plans and opportunities for building on its proven value, while anticipating its role within the new landscape of public health.
