Programs

Adolescent, Genetic and Reproductive Health Section

The Adolescent, Genetic and Reproductive Health Section promotes health, well-being and quality of life for all Oregonians. Through the development and use of evidence-based policies, tools, educational resources, programs and clinical preventive services we support adolescent, sexual and reproductive health across the lifespan. We also support populations impacted by or at risk from genetic conditions.

Health Promotion and Chronic Disease Prevention
The Health Promotion and Chronic Disease Prevention Section monitors chronic diseases and their risk factors in Oregon. This section also works to prevent chronic diseases, promote disease screening when appropriate, and improve care for people with chronic diseases using evidence-based approaches.

 

Injury & Violence Prevention Section
The Injury & Violence Prevention Section monitors both unintentional and violent injuries in the state and works to prevent them. Current areas of focus include childhood injury prevention and youth and older adult suicide prevention.
Maternal and Child Health Section

The Maternal and Child Health Section develops, implements and evaluates public health programs that address the health priorities of Oregon's pregnant women, infants and children. Program areas focus on perinatal health (prenatal and post-partum), infant and child health, newborn hearing screening and oral health.

Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Program

The Oregon WIC Program is designed to improve health outcomes and influence lifetime nutrition and health behaviors in targeted, at-risk populations. WIC provides individual assessments of growth and health; breastfeeding education and support; and education and counseling on nutrition and physical activity, including promotion of a healthy lifestyle and prevention of chronic diseases including obesity.
