Public Health


The public health department promotes the health and well-being of our unique island communities. We protect environmental health by monitoring and regulating key factors, like solid waste, sewage disposal systems, and water quality. We support ecosystems and biodiversity through natural resources conservation. The department prioritizes community health through essential services and communicable disease control, focusing on prevention. Our team also conducts assessment activities to improve community decision-making and guide program direction.

Mission Statement
