Board of Health

What is a board of health?

A board of health (BOH) is a statutorily mandated entity established for public health policy-making and governance. Here at Three Rivers, we have five boards, one local BOH in each county, and one district BOH. The functions and roles of each of the boards are divided into two categories, governing and non-governing.

A governing board is one that oversees and assures the health department is providing services that meet the needs of the community it serves. A non-governing board is responsible for the public health tax, maintenance and upkeep of the agency building, and nominating members to sit on the governing board.

To learn more about how boards of health are created and maintained in Kentucky please visit KRS 212.020.
