Working to Keep Oregonians Healthy
Disease prevention and control is a cooperative effort involving health care providers, local and state health department personnel and members of the community. Oregon Public Health Division programs work to prevent the emergence and spread of communicable diseases. This includes collecting and analyzing disease reports, studying risk factors, protecting exposed individuals and families, developing guidelines for disease prevention and control, and planning and responding to public health emergencies involving communicable diseases. Protecting the population from communicable diseases is one of seven priority areas from Oregon's State Health Improvement Plan.
