Abstract

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment was created in 1974 to replace the Kansas State Board of Health, established in 1885. The Department consists of the Office of the Secretary with all supporting services, a Division of Health with eight bureaus, the Center for Health Equity and the Center for Performance Management, and a Division of Environment with six bureaus and six regional offices. There are two support bureaus -- Epidemiology and Public Health Informatics and the Kansas Health and Environmental Laboratory -- which provide information resource management and laboratory assistance to the other divisions and the general public. The Office of Vital Statistics, within the Epidemiology and Public Health Informatics is responsible for registering births, deaths, marriages and divorces and issuing appropriate certificates.
