Chronic Disease Prevention and Control


Healthy Places, Healthy People envisions a community where healthy foods are available in every neighborhood, schools are a place to learn lifelong healthy habits, workplaces understand that healthy employees are productive employees, parks encourage safe and healthy play, and sidewalks and bike lanes welcome families and commuters.

Healthy Places, Healthy People (HPHP) brings together local coalitions, businesses, non-profits, schools and everyday people to create lasting changes that make it easier for everyone to be healthier. The HPHP initiative is housed within the Austin/Travis County Health & Human Services Department and staff is ready to work directly with you to make healthy changes happen.

HPHP is founded on the principle that many of the root causes of poor health are due to the way our environment is shaped around us; in our homes, neighborhoods, workplaces and schools. By working together to change these spaces, we can make opportunities for active living and healthy eating available to everyone.
