Abstract

The Detroit Health Department is an institution with a diverse set of responsibilities. It offers a wide range of services and programs to secure and to maintain Detroiters health and wellbeing, especially for those people who are not able to take care of themselves. The upheaval in the Detroit automobile industry caused unemployment, decreasing habitants and fiscal problems. In the consequence amongst other things, the investments in the Health Department have been reduced, which led to downsizing and ending health services and programs. Subsequently, Detroit had to struggle with socioeconomic problems and public health. With its key role in populations health, the Health Department is a central contact point for people living in the Detroit Area. In order to maintain the resurfacing strength of Detroit’s Health Department and to make it even better it is necessary to collaborate with different sectors and other Departments for a mutual exchange and to generate money for the Health Department with funding partnerships.
