2015-2016 ALABAMA DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC HEALTH STRATEGIC PLAN
Public health is a multi-disciplinary field in which people work to protect and improve the health of communities and populations through education, policies, and programs that promote healthy lifestyles and reduce the risk of injuries, violence, and infectious disease; these same professionals also routinely monitor disease outbreaks and other public health issues that impact communities throughout our state. The work of public health is a partnership among state and local governments, public health and clinical medicine, statewide associations, community organizations, and individual citizens. ADPH seeks to clearly define its role as one of many vital partners that form an effective public health system for Alabama. The plan allows ADPH to focus its efforts and identify its priorities; it is not an exhaustive list of the work to be undertaken, rather it will reflect the priorities in focusing ADPH’s work and determining needed resources. This plan and the priorities reflect input from multiple levels within ADPH and from a broad-based group of stakeholders. The priority areas identified require additional attention and resources in order to achieve the overall mission of ADPH. DOWNLOAD
