Welcome to HPCD

The Division of Health Promotion and Chronic Disease (HPCD) takes a comprehensive approach to chronic disease management and prevention, working with communities, health systems, and decision-makers to make it easier for people to be healthy in the places they live, work, play and pray.

Our Goals 

West Virginians will need to work together to make the greatest impact on improving health outcomes. Each of us can model and promote healthy behaviors and advocate for healthy environments where we live, work, play and pray. All organizations have a role in promoting healthy environments that change the context for health. Working comprehensively together will help enhance a culture of health.
