By contract with all 24 municipalities, the Department of Health provides a range of programs and services through collaboration with local Boards of Health. Community partnerships also remain vital as we work collectively to improve community health. Partnership meetings are conducted bi-annually to enhance communication and addressing municipal health needs.
Our Community Health Plan
One of the roles of public health in Gloucester County is to improve the health of the public. This is accomplished through strengthened community partnerships. Information and data have been gathered to develop a five year Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) (PDF). The CHIP identifies and prioritizes public health concerns in an effort to address our resident's public health interests and needs.
