FEATURED: 2019 Public Health Accountability Metrics Baseline Report

Oregon’s 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.

Public health accountability metrics are one way Oregon’s public health system demonstrates it is improving health and effectively using public dollars through a modern public health system. Established by the Public Health Advisory Board in 2017, public health accountability metrics reflect population health priorities for public health programs and highlight the daily work of local public health authorities to achieve population health goals.

The 2019 Public Health Accountability Metrics Baseline Report provides an in-depth look at how Oregon’s public health system is doing today compared to a year ago on key health issues like childhood immunization, tobacco use and prescription opioid mortality, and access to clean drinking water.
