Under Minnesota Statute 145 A, Community Health Boards have the authority and responsibility to provide public health services.
Minnesota follows a framework of foundational public health responsibilities that represents the work governmental public health must do to meet communities’ unique needs statewide, grounded by this shared core value of equity. Governmental public health must carry out the foundational public health responsibilities, and the foundational responsibilities must be present in every community across the state to efficiently and effectively promote and protect the health of all people in Minnesota.
- Foundational capabilities are the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to successfully implement the basic public health protections key to ensuring the community’s health and achieving equitable health outcomes.
- Foundational areas are those basic public health, topic-specific responsibilities aimed at improving the health of people and communities.
- Protections and services are beyond the foundational public health responsibilities that are crucial to achieving population health goals.
- These protections and services are critical to a specific community’s health.
- This work is very important, but unique to a given community. These can be provided at the state and/or local level by governmental public health or other partners.
