Health Department Mission:
The Brookline Health Department Divisions provide a range of environmental, community, and clinical health services to monitor and improve the health status and quality of life of persons who live or work in Brookline. Among the steps taken by the Department in seeking this goal are the control of existing and potential environmental hazards; the provision of health education and clinical health services, with emphasis on the prevention and early detection of chronic diseases and the improved management of lifestyle issues affecting health; the delivery of services dealing with conditions resulting from the abuse of drugs or alcohol; and the control of communicable diseases. The provision of a range of health services at a per capita cost of three and a half cents a day is evidence of the cost-effectiveness of the public health services available to the community.

The Human Services Divisions provide support to the Human Relations, Women's, and Disability Commissions, and field a range if Human Services programs, including support to the Domestic Violence Rountable.  They have responsibility for ADA compliance and house the Town's Affirmative Action Officer.
