Serving across our state.

In nine regions of Louisiana, the Office of Public Health serves as a multi-faceted healthcare provider and provides public health leadership to local communities. The team in each region includes doctors, nurses, other clinicians, engineers, chemists, biologists, emergency response experts, sanitarians and other qualified professionals who help keep communities healthy and safe.

In each region, OPH operates health units that serve as the hub for each parish‘s public health needs. Click on any region to see the parishes in that region and details about health services. Services offered in parish health units range from immunizations to reproductive healthcare, to infectious disease prevention and response, to STI services and WIC (Woman, Infants, Children).

Community Healthways

Community HealthWays seeks to improve the quality of life for Louisiana residents by helping to address individuals' health-related social needs (HRSN) and the community factors that drive them. Community HealthWays starts with a Community Health Worker who is a trusted member of, and/or has an unusually close understanding, of the community served and resources available.

The Community Health Worker assists individuals in addressing social problems that lead to poor health with increased attention on food insecurity, housing, transportation, utilities assistance, furthering education, mental health connections and education related to chronic conditions.
