Mission Statement

The Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) works to make our city a healthy place for everyone.

Description

The Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) works to make our city a healthy place for everyone.

Our activity is consistent with the "Ten Essential Public Health Services" recognized by federal health authorities as a fundamental framework of public health activities that should be undertaken in all communities.

Those essential services are:

  • Monitor health status to identify and solve community health problems.
  • Diagnose and investigate health problems and health hazards in the community.
  • Inform, educate and empower people about health issues.
  • Mobilize community partnerships to identify and solve health problems.
  • Develop policies and plans that support individual and community health efforts.
  • Enforce laws and regulations that protect health and ensure safety.
  • Link people to needed personal health services and assure the provision of health care when otherwise unavailable.
  • Assure a competent public health and personal healthcare workforce.
  • Evaluate effectiveness, accessibility and quality of personal and population-based health services.
  • Research for new insights and innovative solutions to health problems.
