Public Health Modernization

Upgrading Oregon's Public Health System

Oregon’s governmental public health system is changing how it prevents disease and protects and promotes health.

A modern public health system ensures critical public health protections are in place for every person in Oregon, that the public health system is prepared and has the right resources to address emerging health threats, and that the public health system is engaged daily to eliminate health disparities.

Oregon counties, tribes and community partners are using a 2019 legislative investment to continue modernizing the state's public health system, including expanding interventions to prevent and respond to infectious disease threats. The Oregon Legislature’s 2019 allocation for public health modernization, the initiative launched seven years ago to upgrade the state’s governmental public health system, provides an investment of $15.6 million for the 2019-2021 biennium.
