Health Concerns About the Misuse of Pesticides for Bed Bug Control


Public Health Issues

The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are alerting the public to an emerging national concern regarding misuse of pesticides to treat infestations of bed bugs and other insects indoors. Some pesticides are being applied indoors even though they are approved only for outdoor use. Even pesticides that are approved for indoor use can cause harm if over applied or not used as instructed on the product label.      download full information

Mission


The Detroit Department of Health and Wellness Promotion (DHWP) has three core functions as defined by the Institute of Medicine (IOM).  These functions are to assess the health of the community, lead and promote evidenced-based policies that are in the public’s best interest, and assure the availability of community and personal health services that are important to the resident of Detroit. DHWP Administration exists to develop and execute the core functions. The Department of Health and Wellness Promotion (DHWP) is responsible for preventing and addressing diseases that threaten the health and well-being of Detroit citizens.

In addition, the DHWP administration exists to implement and enforce all laws and regulations within its authority to protect the public’s health and safety, including responding to emergencies, disasters and communicable disease.

The City of Detroit maintains it designation as a local health department operated by (1) the Health Officer, (2) the Deputy Health Officer, and (3) the Medical Director. These employees, at a minimum, assure the provision of required public health services, and enforce local and state ordinances, and the Michigan Public Health Code (”Code”).  The Health Office or designee exercises all powers and duties vested in them by the Code.

The City of Detroit has designated the Institute of Population Health (IPH) as the entity through which public health, substance abuse, and related health services are delivered to city residents as of October 1, 2012.  IPH was developed to address the decline in public health funding and the risk of jeopardizing the health of Detroit residents. IPH is dedicated to improving the availability and quality of population health, personal health and human services by fostering innovation, leveraging resources and building partnerships across the public sectors.

Services delegated and administered by IPH include, WIC Supplemental Food Services, Children’s Special Health Care Services and Early-On, Maternal and Infant Health Program, Insurance Enrollment, Family Planning, Dental, Vision and Hearing, Immunization, Tuberculosis Control, STD Clinic, HIV/AIDS Prevention, Substance Abuse Services, Food Safety, Environmental Safety, and Emergency Preparedness.
