11/22/2015

Eleven operating divisions, including eight agencies in the United States Public Health Service (USPHS) and three human service agencies, administer HHS’s programs. Eighteen staff divisions provide leadership, direction, and policy and management guidance to the Department. (A complete list of HHS’s operating and staff divisions and a brief description of their activities appear in Appendix F.) HHS works closely with State, local, and tribal governments, and many HHS-funded services are provided at the local level by State, county, local, or tribal agencies, or through grantees in the private sector, including faith-based and community-based organizations.

HHS accomplishes its mission through more than 300 programs and initiatives that cover a wide spectrum of activities, including the following:

  • Providing Medicare (health insurance for Americans who are 65 or older, who are disabled, or who suffer from end stage renal disease) and Medicaid (health insurance for low-income people);
  • Assuring the safety of food and medical products;
  • Delivering comprehensive health care for Native Americans;
  • Promoting access to insurance for the uninsured and necessary health services for medically underserved individuals;
  • Creating an environment that supports the use of health information technologies;
  • Preventing disease through immunization;
  • Promoting healthy lifestyles;
  • Promoting healthy dietary practices, good nutrition, and regular physical activity;
  • Improving the oversight of imported food and medical products;
  • Supporting the prevention and treatment of substance abuse;
  • Improving maternal and infant health;
  • Planning and preparing for public health emergencies, including those that result from terrorism;
  • Providing Head Start (preschool education and services);
  • Preventing child abuse and domestic violence;
  • Supporting faith-based and community initiatives;
  • Improving systems of services in communities to enhance the health and well-being of children and youth with special health care needs and their families;
  • Providing financial assistance and services for low-income families;
  • Offering services for older Americans, including home-delivered meals;
  • Furthering access to health and human services by protecting health information privacy and preventing discrimination in the delivery of these services; and
  • Conducting, supporting, and overseeing scientific and biomedical research and development related to health and human services.

With an FY 2007 budget of $698 billion, HHS represents almost a quarter of all Federal expenditures and administers more grant dollars than all other Federal agencies combined. More than 66,000 people work for HHS.ii Every 3 years, HHS updates its strategic plan, which describes its operating and staff divisions that work individually and collectively to address complex, multifaceted, and ever-evolving health and human service issues.
