About the Board of Health
The Mansfield Board of Health is governed by a five-member volunteer board appointed by the Select Board and strives to provide fair opportunities for all Mansfield residents to be healthy. The five foundational areas include: preventing the spread of communicable disease; ensuring food, air, and water quality are safe; supporting maternal, and child health; improving access to clinical care services; and preventing chronic disease and injury. In addition, public health departments provide local protections and services specific to Mansfield’s needs.
The Mansfield Board of Health is focused on the Foundational Public Health Areas including goals in these areas: Communicable Disease Control; Chronic Disease & Injury Prevention; Environmental Public Health; Maternal, Child, and Family Health; and Access to and Linkage with Clinical Care.
This focus will be carried out through a coordinated approach including assessment and surveillance, community partnership focusing on equity, organizational competencies, policy development and support, accountability and performance management, emergency preparedness and response, and communications.
