As independent agencies, Idaho's seven health districts are primary outlets for public health services.
Idaho public health districts work closely with Health and Welfare and other state and local agencies. Each district has a board of health appointed by county commissioners within that region. The districts are not part of any state agency.
Each district responds to local needs to provide services that may vary from district to district, ranging from community health nursing and home health nursing to environmental health, dental hygiene and nutrition. Many services are provided through contracts with the department.
