Health Assessment Program


Welcome to the Pennsylvania Health Assessment Program (HAP) website. Since 1989, the HAP has partnered with the federal Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) to protect public health. Our goals are:

  • To prevent or reduce illnesses resulting from exposure to hazardous waste sites
  • To determine the health effects associated with such exposures
  • To provide health education to our communities about such health effects and how to reduce their exposure
  • To provide health education to health care professionals serving affected communities
