Vision and Mission
The Vision of the Bureau for Public Health is to have healthy West Virginians in healthy communities.
The Mission is to help shape the environments within which West Virginians in their communities can be safe and healthy. A community can be as small as a neighborhood or as large as the entire state. In fulfilling our Mission, the Bureau embraces the values of community, science and evidence-based decision making, health equity, prevention and wellness, and the protection and improvement of the health of all West Virginians.
