Public health planning

The Oregon Public Health Division (PHD) works to protect and promote the health of all Oregonians and the communities where they live, work, play and learn. Listed below are key planning tools and efforts currently underway that help us achieve our mission.


Oregon's public health system

The Oregon public health system includes federal, state and local agencies, private organizations and other diverse partners working together to put healthy options and health-promoting services within reach for everyone in Oregon. Oregon needs a strong public health system to achieve better health and better care at lower costs. Public health plays an important role in Oregon's health system transformation.
