Happy National Public Health Week 2020!

In the midst of the most challenging public health crisis of our lifetimes, it's more important than ever to celebrate public health.

Help us thank public health for all the hard work everyone's doing to keep our communities safe.

You can apply a COVID-19 lens to the NPHW daily themes and help us keep equity at the forefront of the ongoing worldwide conversation about public health.

Has your NPHW event been cancelled due to COVID-19? We have some ideas for celebrating while respecting the need for physical distancing.

APHA is hosting NPHW events entirely online this year, to protect our partners and neighbors during the COVID-19 pandemic. Learn more about what APHA is doing, and what you can do to prepare without panic

Our NPHW fact sheets are available year-round on the NPHW website so we can keep the momentum and learning going. Learn more about this year's daily themes and how you can be part of the movement for science, action and health, year-round.

How else can you stay involved?

  • Our Billion Steps Challenge which started Jan. 1, is open through the end of NPHW, April 12. And it's not just about walking. The Walker Tracker app lets you convert lots of activities to steps!
  • Become a partner, or step your partnership up and become a NPHW Champion
  • Mark your calendar for 2 p.m. ET on Wednesday, April 8. That's the time for our annual NPHW Twitter Chat! Check out last year's highlights under #NPHWchat
