The Center for Local Public Health Services works with policy makers, agencies, and the public to support and strengthen Missouri's public health system. A strong local public health network is needed to promote health and protect the public from health risks. The center strives to enhance the quality and availability of essential public health services throughout the state. We provide funding, technical assistance and consultation to each local public health agency. We promote development of professional standards and learning opportunities for the local public health workforce. We also work with policy makers and the public to improve understanding of the value of a strong public health system.
