CEHTP Mission

The California Environmental Health Tracking Program


The California Environmental Health Tracking Program (CEHTP) is a program of the Public Health Institute, in partnership with the California Department of Public Health.  CEHTP is primarily funded by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) National Environmental Public Health Tracking Program.  CEHTP works to make environmental health data and information publically-available through the development of a web-based data query system, state-of-the-art data displays, and innovative web tools and services.  CEHTP aims to make these data and information accessible and useful to a variety of stakeholders including communities, governments, academia, and private partners.  


Our Mission and Goals

The mission of CEHTP is to provide data and information on diseases and environmental threats to inform environmental and public health programs, research, and policies.  To fulfill this mission, CEHTP has four core program goals:

  • Maintain, enhance, and expand the California Environmental Health Tracking Network
  • Improve the availability, relevance and utility of environmental public health data and information
  • Build stakeholder capacity and community engagement
  • Inform public health actions in California including research, policies, and practices
