Public Health Accreditation Board

PHAB Video Still - Apples, Books, Student

The Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB) is the nation’s accrediting body for state, local, tribal, and territorial health departments. PHAB seeks to advance the quality and performance of public health departments by setting standards that define the expectations for accreditation. Through collaboration with Special Olympics, PHAB has committed to using its national platform to advance intentional inclusion of people with intellectual disabilities. In September 2017, PHAB published a Tip Sheet on how health departments can identify opportunities to include people with ID in their programs as they prepare for accreditation or reaccreditation.

Under the Special Olympics Inclusive Health Innovation Grant program, supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, PHAB created a series of five case studies showcasing health departments who are advancing inclusion and creating healthier communities in their work related to health promotion, emergency preparedness, and general program planning.
