In 2021, an analysis of the public health workforce found that state and local governmental public health departments need an 80% increase in their workforce to provide a minimum set of public health services to the nation. In response to this gap, the Public Health National Center for Innovations at PHAB, de Beaumont Foundation, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Center for State, Tribal, Local and Territorial Support developed the Public Health Workforce Calculator to aid local health departments in estimating staffing needs to provide the Foundational Public Health Services in their community. Join us on October 27th at 2PM ET to learn more about the Calculator and how it can contribute to workforce staffing needs and planning for public health funding.
