Local Public Health
The Local Public Health Program of the Bureau of Community Health Systems provides coordinating activities between the state health agency, local health departments and other public health community partners.
The staff members focus on improving the public health system in Kansas through the following major goals:
- Increasing the capacity of public health agencies to perform essential public health services
- Increasing the capacity of the public health workforce to achieve core competencies for public health.
- Increasing the capacity of the public health workforce to perform community health assessments, quality improvement processes and prepare for national public health accreditation.
These goals are accomplished through the provision of technical assistance to local health departments and other public health system partners, along with the promotion of comprehensive public health education and training for the public health workforce, in collaboration with academic and other partners.
