    Public Health's 10 Essential Services-  The 10 Essential Services describe the public health activities that all communities should undertake and serve as the framework for the National Public Health Performance Standards.

    Public health systems should:

    1. Monitor health status to identify and solve community health problems. 

    3. Diagnose and investigate health problems and health hazards in the community.

    5. Inform, educate, and empower people about health issues.

    7. Mobilize community partnerships and action to identify and solve health problems.

    9. Develop policies and plans that support individual and community health efforts.

    11. Enforce laws and regulations that protect health and ensure safety.

    13. Link people to needed personal health services and assure the provision of health care when otherwise unavailable.

    15. Assure competent public and personal health care workforce.

    17. Evaluate effectiveness, accessibility, and quality of personal and population-based health services.

    19. Research for new insights and innovative solutions to health problems.  

    The Core Public Health Functions Steering Committee developed the framework for the Essential Services in 1994. For more information, see the  Public Health Functions Project website
