About Us

Our Mission

Our mission is to protect the health and safety of the citizens living in the jurisdictions of the member agencies by supporting and promoting the professional development of individuals and organizational members in public health emergency preparedness.


The Western Wisconsin Public Health Readiness Consortium (WWPHRC) consists of eleven local public health agencies and one tribal health agency.  WWPHRC was established to develop core expertise and preparedness in response to bioterrorism, infectious disease outbreaks, and other public health threats. We do this through networking, coordinating, standardizing, and centralizing our resources and planning efforts among the ten  local public health agency partners in Western Wisconsin.
