What We Do
The Secretary of Health and Human Resources oversees twelve state agencies which provide often-vital services to Virginians. Individuals with disabilities, the aging community, low-income working families, children, caregivers and the provider network are supported through the work of this Secretariat.
In addition, our agencies license health practitioners and ensure safe drinking water in the Commonwealth.
