Brief Agency Description:
The Mississippi State Department of Health’s mission is to protect and promote the health of all Mississippians. The Mississippi State Department of Health provides a broad range of services which can be broken down into four major categories: Health Services and Programs, Regulations and Licensure, Emergency Preparedness, and Vital Records and Statistics. The Department of Pharmacy is a closed door pharmacy where we provide medications to patients who are on federal or state health programs. In Mississippi, the State Department of Health is charged with the responsibility of working with the State Legislature to maintain an updated Uniform Controlled Substances Law. Please note that although it is primarily the responsibility of this Agency, it is not an exclusive assignment. Other agencies may also submit updates to the Legislature, e.g., the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics, etc.
