According to the World Health Organization, public health refers to all organized measures (whether public or private) to prevent disease, promote health, and prolong life among the population as a whole. Its activities aim to provide conditions in which people can be healthy and focus on entire populations, not on individual patients or diseases. Thus, public health is concerned with the total system and not only the eradication of a particular disease.
The mission of the Berkeley County Health Department is to provide approved Clinical and Environmental services required by the state of West Virginia in order to protect the health of the general public. We also plan and mobilize appropriate actions with the community in order to act during a disaster or epidemic and to help provide solutions for a healthier Berkeley County.
We’re committed to building public health in our community.
Our staff members are highly skilled and have years of experience and certifications. But, their dedication to making sure your needs are met doesn't come from that, it comes from within. And it's embraced and appreciated by all of our staff.
Get to know our experienced public health workers. They’ve got the skills, and a desire to help. Come see why no agency is as qualified or convenient as we are.
