Given the recent interest in public health accreditation programs and related efforts, there is a need to learn from the shared experiences of states that have developed, implemented, and evaluated their own efforts. The Multistate Learning Collaborative provided such an opportunity. Five states were selected to participate in this national peer group. The states represented in the Collaborative reflect different accreditation and assessment models, varying levels of maturity, and various designs based on the context and needs of a given state. However, despite these differences, common themes, critical elements, and shared challenges have emerged.
