Health & Human Services Committee

AOC recognizes the responsibility of county governments to help protect and enhance the lives of its citizens and residents. The work of the Health and Human Services Steering Committee includes issues of healthcare/Medicaid, mental health, alcohol & drug addiction treatment, public health, intellectual and developmental disabilities, early childhood development and seniors. Counties have been at the forefront in implementing a comprehensive, integrated system of health and human services, encompassing evidence-based prevention, intervention and treatment approaches. In recognizing and building upon existing social foundations, county governments serve as the link among federal, state and municipal policies and the delivery of critical services in ways that maintain and foster healthy and self-sufficient communities, families and individuals. The Committee’s state partner agencies include the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) and the Department of Human Services (DHS)
