Welcome to the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit!

Public health programs keep our community healthy by promoting improved health, preventing disease and injury, controlling threats to human life and function, and facilitating social conditions to ensure equal opportunity in attaining health for all.

Our Health Unit, in partnership with other agencies and health care providers, seeks to enable all Windsor and Essex County residents to be as healthy as possible.

As Medical Officer of Health for Windsor-Essex County, I hope this web site will assist you in finding out more about our Health Unit, as well as accessing our many services.
