READ IT HERE: Report: Kansas Foundational Public Health Services Model Development

Kansas public health agencies have committed to a multi-year process aimed at modernizing the Kansas public health system. This effort focuses on the Kansas Foundational Public Health Services (FPHS) model, a minimum package of public health services available to all Kansans. This was the second phase of a three-part effort which included:

1. A literature review of similar models from other states;
2. A stakeholder engagement and vetting process to develop the Kansas FPHS model; and
3. A capacity assessment of Kansas local health departments.

This report describes the Kansas FPHS model and the stakeholder engagement process used to develop it.
