The Alabama Department of Public Health is the primary health agency for Alabama. ADPH works to provide caring, high-quality and professional services for the improvement and protection of the public’s health through disease prevention and the assurance of public services regardless of social circumstances or the ability to pay. To that goal, the agency offers more than 100 services statewide by public health professionals to assure that water is safe, children have their immunizations, restaurants are safe and birth certificates are correct — to name just a few.
The department’s main office is in Montgomery. The state is divided into 11 public health areas responsible for developing public health services and programs specific to the needs of each area. County health departments offer a variety of services, including communicable disease investigation and intervention, family planning, immunizations, STD counseling and testing, WIC and nutrition services, women’s health services and more.
