The Ohio Public Health Partnership has received funding for Ohio from the Public Health National Center for Innovations (PHNCI), at the Public Health Accreditation Board, to test and implement strategies to adopt foundational public health services statewide.

Ohio was selected as one of three states, along with Oregon and Washington, to receive funding to ensure that all residents have equitable access to public health. The work identified in the Association of Ohio Health Commissioners 2012 report, “Public Health Futures”, the recommendations from the 2012 Legislative Committee review and national consensus on the foundational public health services (FPHS) leaves Ohio primed to move on to concrete next steps to ensure that all Ohioans regardless of geographical location, have equitable access to foundational public health services.
