Alameda County Public Health Department

We recognize that residents are more than mere consumers of public health services. In addition to health services, our health department is involved in a variety of community-based activities that engage residents in the planning, evaluation and implementation of health activities in their communities. Many of those services and activities are profiled on this site.

Let's Get Healthy California

Let's Get Healthy California
Started in 2012, the Let’s Get Healthy initiative created a 10-year plan to make California the healthiest state in the nation. A task force composed of California leaders in health and healthcare from the public and private sectors came together and identified six Let’s Get Healthy California goals focused on health across the lifespan – from healthy beginnings to end of life. The emphasis is on achieving better health, better care, lowering health costs, and promoting health equity among Californians. Residents are encouraged to share their stories, stay connected, and learn about innovations.


Mosquito Surveillance
The Centers for Disease Control has conducted surveys to record where the Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus mosquitoes that transmit the Zika virus are found in the U.S. The latest 2016 data add Ae. aegypti collection records from 38 new counties and Ae. albopictus collection records from 127 new counties.  "This is a 21 percent and 10 percent increase, compared with the previous report," CDC noted in a recent news release, adding the findings "highlight the need for enhanced mosquito surveillance by health departments and mosquito control districts" to stem the possibility of mosquito-borne disease outbreaks.
