New Survey Shows Rising Level of Turnover in Public Health Workforce

The 2017 Public Health Workforce Interests and Needs Survey (PH WINS), released today by the de Beaumont Foundation, shows a rising level of turnover among state and local governmental public health agencies, which could pose a threat to community health and safety. Nearly half of survey respondents said they plan to leave their organization within the next five years. Read the report to see the details about this and other trends.


Brian C. Castrucci, DrPH, CEO of the de Beaumont Foundation: "Health departments are already understaffed and underfunded. The consequences of losing nearly half of an already-strapped workforce would put our country at great risk. These professionals do important work that most people don't even realize is happening, preventing major diseases and outbreaks before they even happen."
