Public Health Council

The Public Health Council (PHC) was created in 2003 by Wisconsin Act 186 and operates under the authority of Wis. Stat. § 15.197(13). The 19-member council is made up of representatives from health care consumers, health care providers, health professions educators, local health departments and boards, federally recognized American Indian Tribes or bands, and public safety agencies.

The council provides leadership and guidance to the Department of Health Services, the Governor, the Legislature and the public on progress in implementing the state’s 10-year public health plan and coordination of responses to public health emergencies. Council members are nominated by the secretary of health services and are appointed by the governor for three-year terms.
