Task Force on the Future of Public Health Services
Final Report Released September 2014Report cover

The Task Force on the Future of Public Health Services developed recommendations that will modernize Oregon’s governmental public health system. These changes focus on the need to achieve sustainable and measureable improvements in population health; continue to protect individuals from injury and disease; and be fully prepared for the governmental public health system in Oregon to respond to public health threats that may occur.

The Task Force identified a framework set of Foundational Capabilities and Programs that are needed throughout the state and local public health system. These include a set of core staff capabilities and programmatic activities that should be delivered throughout Oregon at both the state and local level. The Task Force believes that implementation and full operationalizing of the Foundational Capabilities and Programs will achieve this modern public health system.
