The Department of Public Health is pleased to announce the release of its Strategic Plan 2013-2017, which highlights key areas where DPH seeks to make significant improvements in the health of Los Angeles County residents over the next five years.

The strategic planning process was conducted within the framework of broader community health planning, using Public Health Accreditation Board requirements as a guiding structure and integrating the National Prevention Strategy and the Essential Public Health Services. Surveys of staff and stakeholders, a SWOT analysis, and consideration of DPH's leadership priorities drove the development of six strategic priority areas. Finally departmental subject area experts participated in priority area workgroups to refine goals and develop objectives and activities. Objectives reflect the highest-priority issues that each program needs to address in the coming years and offer opportunities for measurement and accountability.

The end product is a functional internal strategic plan that ensures alignment of the department's core functions within a changing landscape. As we embark on this new path, we will continue to improve the well-being of communities across Los Angeles County.
