Who We Are

​​​Established in 2006, the Kentucky Department for Public Health Division of Prevention and Quality Improvement (DPQI) is the cornerstone of state public health efforts to address chronic disease through prevention and assuring health care access for the underserved population. The DPQI includes both the Chronic Disease Prevention Branch and the Health Care Access Branch, bridging the gap from research, discovery and development to delivery to improve the health status of Kentuckians.
