The Clinton County Health District (CCHD)



CCHD started in 1919 with the passing of the Hughes Act and Griswold Amendment that served as the foundation for public health districts to reach over 25k people in Ohio. In the 100 years before the COVID pandemic, 25 years of life expectancy was added for peoples living in the US. The CDC accredits this increase in longevity to: vaccinations, improved motor vehicle safety, safer workplaces, control of infectious diseases, decline in death because of cardiovascular illness, food safety, improvement in maternal and childhood health, family planning, fluoridation of drinking water, and reductions in tobacco use. CCHD, led by the Clinton County Board of Health, strives to improve the health of Clinton County residents by preventing disease, protecting health, and promoting public health within the community.
