One of the most difficult forms of public health practice to characterize involves governmental public health agencies, especially at the local level.
A lack of consensus within the public health community as to the purpose and content of organizational public health practice inhibits efforts to increase the capability of public health to address effectively its core functions of assessment, policy development, and assurance.
Meaningful capacity building efforts must establish both benchmarks and expectations for the organizational practice of public health.
Those markers must be established so that the impact of practice on outcomes and health status can be examined.
