NALBOH: Building Public Health Governance Capacity

Tuesday, November 5, 2013: 8:30 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.
NALBOH believes public health governance boards protect and promote public health by ensuring that the health department has the people, skills, policies, resources, and partnerships needed to deliver essential public health services. Non-governing advisory boards are also important, as they provide a voice for the community, and the necessary public health focus to ensure effective and responsible governance of the health department. The Six Functions of Public Health Governance informs boards on how to build capacity and assure accountability.
Session Objectives: Describe how the six functions of public health governance crosswalk with the ten essential services of public health. Identify how board policy development, continuous improvement, and partner engagement build capacity. Explore how resource stewardship, oversight, and exercising legal authority of the board build capacity.
