The Kauai District Health Office (KDHO) is headed by the District Health Officer, Janet Berreman, MD, MPH. In coordination with the State Director of Health and DOH leadership, the District Health Officer oversees the operations of all KDHO programs. She participates in local community initiatives and partners with health care, education, and other agencies in the County. She provides consultation on issues of public health concern in the community.


The Administration section serves as the central headquarters for the KDHO and provides direct support to the Kauai District Health Officer. The KDHO includes nine program Sections: Administration, Family Health Services (FHS), Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (CDPHP), Communicable Disease and Public Health Nursing Services (CDPHN), Disease Investigation, Laboratory, Public Health Emergency Preparedness, Environmental Health, and Developmental Disabilities programs.

As the front line to customers of the Kauai District Health Office, the administrative staff is made up of employees who exemplify excellent customer service skills as they are frequently called upon to assist with both external and internal customer needs.


Vital records is a prime customer service function of the Administration section. The staff at KDHO registers home births and issues permits for burials and cremations.

The staff provides support and guidance for completing vital records requests (birth, death, civil union, marriage, and divorce certificates, and voluntary establishment of paternity) for events that occurred in Hawaii. The KDHO can now issue Birth and Marriage Certificates. Death Certificates are only issued by the Office of Health Status Monitoring, which is a unit of the Department of Health located on Oahu. The KDHO has Request Forms readily available for pick up in our Lihue office. Death Certificate request forms need to be mailed directly to the Office of Health Status Monitoring on Oahu. You may also order birth and marriage certificates online at: Order Vital Records

If you would like for the KDHO to issue your Hawaii Birth or Marriage Certificate, please note the following:

– Cash or money orders are not accepted at KDHO.
– All orders have to be placed and paid for online at Order Vital Records
– Once your order has been completed online, forward the Confirmation Tracking number to: [email protected]
