NC Division of Public Health

Working for a healthier and safer North Carolina - Everywhere, Everyday, Everybody.

North Carolina Public Health (NCPH) works to promote and contribute to the highest possible level of health for the people of North Carolina.

Our entire statewide system of public health has dedicated professionals who carry out our mission every day through a wide range of essential programs and activities touching the lives of everyone in our state.

North Carolina Public Health is community health. Disease prevention, health services and health promotion programs protect entire communities – not just individuals – from untoward outcomes such as communicable diseases, epidemics, and contaminated food and water. We work daily to reduce the impact of chronic and oral diseases.
