Iowa Public Health Modernization


The Public Health Modernization Act established two committees to advise the director of the Iowa Department of Public Health about matters regarding Iowa's governmental public health system. These committees will continue the work of the Modernizing Public Health in Iowa Initiative and its Work Group and Implementation Committees.

The Public Health Advisory Council was established to advise the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) and the director of the department about the implementation of a voluntary accreditation system for Iowa's local and state public health departments, further development of the Iowa Public Health Standards, and to make recommendations about furthering Iowa's public health system.

The Public Health Evaluation Committee was established to evaluate Iowa's governmental public health system and voluntary accreditation program to assess the impact on population health outcomes.
