Mission –  Improve health, advance equity and reduce disparities

To achieve our mission as a Public Health Institute, we: 

  • work with private and public partners to create innovative and sustainable community-led solutions.
  • believe that long-lasting, meaningful change is possible here in Oregon.
  • advocate use for strategies that advance equity and reduce disparities, whether leading or supporting the work of others.
  • look upstream, downstream, and midstream to identify solutions that go beyond existing healthcare strategies.

Vision – Building vibrant communities of health

OPHI is building a future Oregon where the places we live, work, learn and play support a vibrant community of healthy people. We are guided by an abiding belief in the long term value of preventive health for everyone and we actively partner with others to achieve that vision.
