The Model State Public Health Act is a tool for state, local, and tribal government to use in assessing their existing public health laws and identifying the changes they deem necessary. The Act strives to address modern conditions that impact public health; incorporate modern scientific developments in the areas of disease control and epidemiology; equip public health officials with a range of flexible powers needed to control infectious diseases and other conditions; define relationships among public health agencies and other partners in the public health system; and comport with current legal standards of privacy, due process, and risk assessment.
