Background: 10 Essential Public Health Services
For the past 25 years, the 10 Essential Public Health Services (10EPHS) have served as a framework for carrying out the mission of public health. The 10EPHS was revised in 2020 in an effort to provide public health with a framework to protect and promote the health of all people in all communities. The updated 10EPHS works to promote policies, systems, and overall community conditions that enable optimal health for all. In addition, the revised 10EPHS seeks to remove systemic and structural barriers that have resulted in health inequities, including poverty, racism, and other forms of oppression.

Kansas Public Health Collaborative 10EPHS Campaign
The Kansas Public Health Collaborative was created in 2019 to expand collaboration, communication, and capacity development for Kansas health departments and their workforce. The public health workforce has undoubtedly been occupied by COVID-19 response activities, and consequently, some may have not yet seen the historic revision of the 10EPHS framework. Throughout 2021, the KPHC 10EPHS campaign will share key features of the revised 10EPHS framework including a review of the 10 essential services. The campaign will also feature the work of state, tribal and local public health departments and staff who are implementing elements of the 10EPHS in their jurisdiction. Written content and short videos will be shared via social media, email campaigns and websites. The primary audience for the campaign will be Kansas public health practitioners at the state, tribal and local levels. Additional audiences will include public health system partners (who work with governmental public health at all levels) and members of local boards of health.
