What we do

The Department of Public Health works to make Philadelphia a healthy place to live, work, and play.

Our department:

  • Provides high-quality medical care at City health centers.
  • Prevents the spread of illness and infectious disease.
  • Protects against environmental hazards.
  • Encourages healthy behaviors to prevent chronic disease.
  • Plans and responds to health emergencies.
  • Ensures the quality and accessibility of health services.
  • Sets health policy.
  • Collects, analyzes, and reports on a variety of public health data.

Two boards provide us with guidance on policy and regulatory issues: the Board of Health and the Air Pollution Control Board.

The Medical Examiner’s Office (MEO) determines the cause and manner of death for sudden, unexpected, and unnatural deaths in Philadelphia.

By providing a safety net to the City’s most vulnerable people, we work to keep everyone in Philadelphia healthy.
