OUR SERVICES-COMMUNICABLE DISEASES

Communicable diseases are a danger to everyone. Some have been controlled with vaccinations and modern technology, while others are emerging or resistant to drug treatments. Disease prevention and control is a cooperative effort involving health care providers, local and state health department personnel and members of the community.

Oregon's Public Health Division's programs work to prevent the emergence and spread of communicable diseases such as salmonellosis, influenza, hepatitis, HIV, and tuberculosis. This includes collecting and analyzing disease reports, studying risk factors, protecting exposed individuals and families, developing guidelines for disease prevention and control, and planning and responding to public health emergencies involving communicable diseases.
