The New Jersey Department of Health (NJDOH) and the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) are continuing to expand the New Jersey Environmental Public Health Tracking (EPHT) Network, which is part of a National EPHT Network being developed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 23 states, and New York City.

The NJDOH and NJDEP collect data on health, human exposures and environmental hazards, and the New Jersey EPHT Network seeks to bring this information together.  Tracking data can be used to help understand patterns and trends in:

  • Environmental hazards
  • Levels of human exposure
  • Patterns and time trends in diseases

New Jersey’s Environmental Public Health Tracking Program uses the New Jersey State Health Assessment Data (NJ SHAD) system to disseminate Tracking Data.  Information in NJ SHAD can be found in three forms: indicator reports, custom queries and written reports
