The Missouri Institute for Community Health is the accrediting body for Missouri’s Voluntary Accreditation Program for Local Public Health Agencies. Since 2002, MICH has offered a low-cost solution for a path to quality improvement for agencies looking to make improvements in the way they do their business. MICH has spent the past year revising the standards to reflect the way public health is practiced in today’s world. This was achieved with the assistance and advice from over 75 public health professionals from around the state of Missouri. Please take a look at our new standards and start your own journey to public health excellence.
