During public health emergencies, the Oregon Health Authority’s Public Health Division (OHA-PHD) works with local and tribal health authorities to make sure all Oregonians get health and safety information that is timely and accurate.
OHA-PHD staff prepare for and respond to public health emergencies along with our partners. These staff also provide our partners with training and technical assistance in crisis and emergency risk communication.
OHA-PHD delivers information in many ways. These can include television, print, radio, web-based media, and our agency website. When a public health emergency response requires the use of other means of communication, OHA-PHD collaborates with partners to select and use methods that make sense. OHA-PHD also helps partners develop outreach materials.
