The mission of OHD is to promote the health and well being of people with disabilities in Massachusetts and to prevent secondary conditions. This mission reflects the understanding that disability need not equal poor health; prevention and health promotion are as relevant for persons with disabilities as for those without disabilities; and most secondary conditions or other health problems to which persons with disabilities may be vulnerable, but which do not directly reflect their disabling conditions, are preventable.
