Guided by a Task Force and with input from more than 1,300 stakeholders, the Public Health National Center for Innovations (PHNCI) and the de Beaumont Foundation released the proposed 10 Essential Public Health Services (EPHS) framework for public review and comment. Using this survey link, you can submit your comments on as many Essential Services as you would like and provide general comments on the framework. Comments will be accepted from March 2 through April 2, 2020.
Please confine your comments to the content of the draft. Grammatical errors or other typographical errors will be addressed prior to final publication in June 2020.
How to Submit Comments
Comments will be accepted through the survey only. No comments will be accepted via e-mail, fax, letter, or other format. The comment period closes at 11:59PM EDT on April 2, 2020.
PHNCI and the de Beaumont Foundation have partnered to lead the Futures Initiative, to bring the 10 EPHS in line with current and future public health practice. Based on feedback received during the public vetting period and with further input from the Task Force and communications experts, a finalized framework is expected to be launched during the Public Health Innovation Summit & Showcase in June 2020. After its launch, the framework will be disseminated broadly for adoption in the field. Visit PHNCI’s webpage on the 10 EPHS for more information on the Futures Initiative, including an environmental scan, progress to date, a list of the Task Force members, and more.
