Missouri's Foundational Public Health Services Model

Missouri's Foundational Public Health Services (FPHS) model describes a minimum set of fundamental services and capabilities that must be available in every community in order to ensure Missouri’s public health system delivers equitable opportunities for good health to all Missourians.

The FPHS model provides a critical and consistent framework for practicing public health. 


The result is an increased ability to practice person- and community-centered care and resourcing that helps people break through barriers to reach their best state of health. When we have functioning systems, we have more room to operate in a way that honors the dignity and value of every person.
