Public Health Resilience, Response and Recovery

Complex public health problems require a nimble, community-based and equity-centered public health system.

People in Oregon deserve a public health system that identifies, plans for and prevents communicable and environmental threats. Building upon public health improvements to date, Oregon has the opportunity to ensure all people and communities thrive with optimal physical, mental and social well-being and have access to quality, affordable health care through public health modernization.
