The mission of the Central MA Regional Public Health Alliance is to improve, promote, and protect the health and safety of residents in participating Massachusetts municipalities through the formation of strong community and academic partnerships, data-driven decision-making, and delivery of high quality public health services.
The Central MA Regional Public Health Alliance will be a nationally recognized model for an efficient, effective, and equitable regional public health system in the healthiest region in New England.
“Public Health is the science of protecting and improving the health of communities through education, promotion of healthy lifestyles, and research for disease and injury prevention.”
The Alliance works to protect and improve community well-being by preventing disease and injury by promoting social, economic and environmental factors fundamental to health. The local health department is the foundation of the local public health system that comprises public- and private-sector health care providers, academia, community based organizations, business, the media and other local and state governmental entities.
Since its inception, the Central Massachusetts Regional Public Health Alliance (CMRPHA) has aimed to be an innovative regional public health district united through an array of shared health services. Its capability to do so will now be enhanced through a new Shared Services Coordinator position that will focus on strengthening and facilitating collaboration across each municipality.
