DOH - Department of Health

The Department of Health provides programs and services with the ultimate goal of reducing the burden of disease. We do this through a number of mechanisms that center around prevention, promotion of health, and expanding access to health care. The Department provides public health management and leadership through policy, planning, and evaluation; fiscal oversight; human resource management; grants and contracts management; information technology; government relations; risk management; communication and community relations; legal oversight; and facilities management. Our performance plan is based on three priority areas: 1) health and wellness promotion, 2) HIV/AIDS prevention and awareness, and 3) public health systems enhancement. Our success with these priorities will be measured in part by the performance measures in this document, but also by the many other measures of performance defined by the divisions within the agency.>> more
