Where Environmental Data Meets Health Data
The Oregon Environmental Public Health Tracking (Oregon Tracking) Program is working to develop a statewide network of health and environmental data that will drive actions to improve the health of communities. Oregon is one of 26 grantees funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that comprise a larger national network of tracking programs that feed into the national Tracking Network.
Previous projects by the Tracking Network have improved information technology through better infrastructure, expanded environmental public health tracking capacity and trained public health workers.
By bringing together environmental and health information sources, scientists, communities, policymakers and the public, we will be better equipped to answer fundamental questions about the relationships between environmental exposures and health effects.
Oregon Tracking is a program within the Public Health Division of the Oregon Health Authority and is funded by the CDC.
The vision of Oregon Tracking is to provide information about health and the environment for our partners, stakeholders and the concerned public leading to actions to improve the health of Oregon communities.
Provide Information that Drives Actions to Improve Health
The mission of Oregon Tracking is to develop information systems, analytical tools, staff expertise and an internet-accessible library of integrated environmental hazard, environmental exposure and human health outcome data and information. We will share this resource with partners and stakeholders to raise awareness of environmental health concerns and drive actions to improve public health.
