Think of Santa Clara County Public Health as a localized repository of knowledge for healthier living. In addition to fighting the spread of disease and developing plans for responding to disasters (floods, wildfires, bioterrorism, etc.), the department works to enforce regulations that protect water quality, food safety, and air quality. Public Health offers assistance programs specifically for lower-income residents, but other services are available to all, such as STD and HIV testing, monitoring water contamination, and testing ticks for Lyme disease. And the site offers a wealth of material on common maladies and general wellness.
