Upgrading Oregon's Public Health System
In order to support the health of all people in Oregon where they live, work, learn and play, we need to upgrade our public health system.
Public health modernization will ensure basic public protections critical to the health of all Oregonians and future generations – these include protection from communicable disease and environmental risks, health promotion, prevention of diseases and injury, and responding to new health threats.
In July 2015, the Oregon legislature passed House Bill 3100; this bill implements the recommendations made by the Task Force on the Future of Public Health Services in the September 2014 report titled, "Modernizing Oregon’s Public Health System" (below). House Bill 3100 sets forth a path to modernize Oregon’s public health system so that it can more proactively meet the needs of Oregonians.
