Hamilton County Public Health serves more than 460,000 Hamilton County residents living outside the cities of Cincinnati, Norwood and Springdale. With a staff of more than 80, including sanitarians, plumbers, health educators, nurses and epidemiologists, Hamilton County Public Health strives to prevent disease and injury, promote wellness, and protect people from environmental hazards.
The WeTHRIVE! initiative began with funding from three national grants held by HCPH:
Strategic Alliance for Health, a $2 million grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Healthy Kids Healthy Communities, a $360,000 grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
Communities Putting Prevention to Work, a $6.7 million grant from the CDC.
Many successes were achieved as a result of these funding opportunities. To achieve our mission and vision, we recognize that we need to build on the momentum and continue to engage communities to collaboratively address health concerns affecting each community. As a result, the WeTHRIVE! initiative was expanded to include four prevention pathways – Chronic Disease (original focus), Community Health, Emergency Preparedness and Environmental Health.
