Denver Department of Public Health & Environment is a member of the Metro Denver Partnership for Health, whose mission is to improve population health regionally with collective action.
MDPH is a partnership between public health, health systems, Regional Accountable Entities, human services, and regional health alliances. MDPH works alongside regional leaders in behavioral health, environment, philanthropy, local government, education, and others to achieve its goals of promoting health and well-being across the region.
MDPH is led by eight metro Denver public health partners (LPHAs) — Adams County Health Department, Arapahoe County Public Health, Boulder County Public Health, Broomfield Department of Public Health and Environment, Denver Department of Public Health & Environment, Douglas County Health Department, Jefferson County Public Health, and the Public Health Institute at Denver Health — that serve Adams, Arapahoe, Broomfield, Boulder, Denver, Douglas, and Jefferson counties.
MDPH’s work impacts roughly 3 million Coloradans, half of the state’s population, who live in this region.
