Board of Health Minimize

PURPOSE: Boards of health are part of state and local public health systems and are charged to address health promotion, disease prevention, and public protection. They provide the necessary guidance and oversight of a local health department to assure the community’s health.
Boards of health are a powerful part of a local public health system. Board roles vary across the country. In Indiana, boards set policies, hire and fire the health officer, review operational data and challenge any organizational activity when necessary. Boards also have financial oversight of the local health department.
