The Department of Health (DOH) believes that health, that optimal state of physical, mental, social and environmental well-being, is a right and responsibility of all of Hawaii's people. The DOH aims to prevent disease and injury, promotes health and well-being, healthy lifestyles and workplaces, and the strength and integrity of families and communities. The DOH ensures that core public health functions - assessment, policy, and assurance - are implemented or maintained; federal mandates, including court-ordered settlements are satisfied; resources are directed at those problems that pose the greatest risk to the public's health and the environment; appropriate and cost-effective resources are dispersed geographically and the health department is the service provider of last resort for uninsurable populations and where there is no other satisfactory alternative.
