There are 36 counties in Oregon that comprise 34 local public health authorities. The community-wide work of these authorities spans the state’s more than 98,000 square miles to affect the health of nearly 4 million Oregonians. Together with the state public health division and regional partners, the goal of these authorities is to reduce the burden of chronic disease by making it easier for all Oregonians to eat better, move more and live tobacco free wherever the live, work, play and learn.
