Welcome to the Public Health Division at the City of Berkeley, CA. We are part of the Department of Health Services.
The Berkeley Public Health Division is made up of public health nurses, community outreach workers, health educators, health care providers, and other public health professionals. We are all committed to eliminating health inequities in Berkeley. We provide direct services for individuals and families and work together to address the social, educational, economic, and environmental inequities that affect health. The Public Health Division works to ensure the health and well being of all Berkeley residents and believes that every person in Berkeley has the right to good health.
