Portland Public Health Division
Julianne A. Sullivan, Director
Portland Public Health is one of four Divisions in the Health and Human Services Department within the City of Portland (the other three Divisions are Social Services, Elder Services and the Barron Center).
Portland Public Health Division consists of five broad program areas: Environmental Health & Safety, Family Health, Chronic Disease Prevention, India Street Clinical Services, Health Care for the Homeless, and Health Equity & Research.
These areas cover initiatives ranging from substance abuse prevention to emergency preparedness and infectious disease control to physical activity and nutrition.
The mission of Portland's Public Health Division is to improve the health of individuals, families, and the community through disease prevention, health promotion and protection from environmental threats.
Public Health works to protect and improve Portland's well-being by preventing disease, illness and injury, and impacting social, economic and environmental factors required for good health. Your local health department is the foundation of the local public health system that comprises health care providers, academia, business, the media, and other local and state governmental entities. We use a broad array of strategies and tactics used to protect and improve community well-being. Take a look around our website to learn more.
