Welcome to the North Central Public Health District (NCPHD) Website, serving residents of Wasco, Sherman and Gilliam Counties.
We strive so that one day all people will live in a safe environment free from fear of preventable diseases; that all businesses, organizations and individuals will have access to health information and have the desire to promote and be responsible for a healthy lifestyle for themselves and each other.
NCPHD is responsible for enforcement and administration of public and environmental health laws of federal, state, and county government. We conduct activities necessary for the preservation of health, prevention of disease, and protection of the public. We do this by following the three core public health functions:
- Policy Development
Community & Collaboration
The 2011-2016 Community Health Assessment data for Gilliam, Sherman, and Wasco Counties is included in the current Annual Plan.
Health District Data
NCPHD is responsible for the collection of information on a range of health related issues.The information is collected to monitor the general health and well-being of Wasco, Sherman and Gilliam County citizens. These data are useful for health program development, targeting and evaluation of program progress. The information is used to identify emerging health issues and trends and can be made available for epidemiological research. Statistics are developed from the data collected to provide basic information on these health events.
