CDPH Public Health Decision Framework

The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) has established a united, three faceted Public Health Decision Framework (Framework) throughout CDPH. The Framework's three facets consist of the Core Public Health Functions and Ten Essential Public Health Services, the Healthy People 2020 Advisory Committee Criteria and the Determinants of Health. This Framework will better position CDPH to respond to the changing public health concerns of the 21st century, while maintaining the gains and achievements made in public health during the past century. The Framework will guide CDPH in proactively prioritizing our work, and will serve as an outline to develop and revise the next CDPH Strategic Plan. The Framework also supports CDPH's mission to optimize the health and well being of the people in California and will help CDPH move closer to its vision of healthy individuals and families in healthful communities.
