Who We Are
With the mission of improving the health, wellness, and quality of life for all individuals in Strafford County, NH, the Strafford County Public Health Network works to build one integrated system of community members, businesses, and health organizations working together to address public health needs.
The Strafford County Public Health Network is representative of the following municipalities: Dover, Rochester, Durham, Somersworth, Barrington, Farmington, Milton, Lee, Strafford, New Durham, Rollinsford, Middleton, Madbury, and the University of New Hampshire.
