National Public Health Performance Standards Program (NPHPSP)
Welcome to the CDC National Public Health Performance Standards Program (NPHPSP) Internet site. The NPHPSP is a National Partnership initiative that has developed National Public Health Performance Standards for state and local public health systems and for public health governing bodies. The vision, mission, and goals of the NPHPSP are provided below.
This site provides information on the NPHPSP, the National Partners, and the resources available to support performance assessment and systems improvement. NPHPSP and National Partner staffs offer technical assistance, performance assessment analysis reports, and systems planning services to users of our assessment instruments. Priority for our technical assistance services is given to locations undertaking coordinated statewide assessments.
