The Essential Public Health Functions (EPHF) are the fundamental set of actions that should be performed in order to achieve public health’s central objective: improving the health of populations. The Pan-American Health Organization/World Health Organization (PAHO/WHO), through the Public Health in the Americas Initiative, defined the eleven Essential Public Health Functions necessary to strengthen public health practice, and developed a methodology that allows countries to evaluate their public health capacity.
