Navajo County Community Public Health Services District

Public Health is an organized community effort to address the public interest in health by applying scientific and technical knowledge to prevent disease and promote health. That is, public health is what we all do together, as a community, to create a safer, healthier and happier quality of life. The Navajo County Public Health Department has the responsibility to assess and assure that the key elements are in place so that this can happen.
