Policies and Initiatives
Healthy Baltimore 2020 is our blueprint for health in the city, and focuses on "upstream" interventions: tackling the issues we believe will most significantly impact the health of our residents and address them as early as possible.
Learn about the efforts underway in Baltimore to raise awareness of critical health issues, spark new dialogue and change behaviors to improve health in our city.
Learn about funding opportunities from BCHD.
Information on BCHD and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, commonly known as HIPAAA, including both Policies and Procedures and the Privacy Practices , can be found here.
The City of Baltimore understands that the success of every City agency depends on the ability to attract and retain the best available talent and to help those individuals reach their fullest potential.
Accordingly, the City remains firmly committed to equal employment opportunity for all employees and job applicants and to developing a highly talented and diverse workforce that can deliver the best possible services to the citizens of Baltimore.
Conversations across our city often focus on the state of the economy, public safety, and education. These are all essential issues – but there is another critical topic that cuts across all of them: health.
