With an annual budget of $1.6 billion and more than 6,000 employees throughout the ﬁve boroughs, we’re one of the largest public health agencies in the world. We’re also one of the nation’s oldest public health agencies, with more than 200 years of leadership in the ﬁeld.
Every day, we protect and promote the health of 8 million diverse New Yorkers. Our work is broad-ranging. You see us in the inspection grades of dining establishments, the licenses dogs wear, the low- to no-cost health clinics in your neighborhood, and the birth certiﬁcates for our littlest New Yorkers.
We’re also behind the scenes with our disease detectives, investigating suspicious clusters of illness. Our epidemiologists study the patterns, causes and effects of health and disease conditions in New York City neighborhoods. These studies shape policy decisions and the City’s health agenda.
