The Madison County Health Department is the entity certified by the Illinois Department of Public Health to undertake the planning and implementation of a community health program designed to address the priority community health needs of Madison County residents.  The Department provides a core of services in the areas of potable water supplies, food protection, infectious disease control and community health education.  Other programs are instituted as local needs are identified and resources to support addressing those needs are found.
