National Public Health Week 2016

The 2016 National Public Health Week theme, “Healthiest Nation 2030: Let’s make America the healthiest nation in one generation,” calls on the public health community to address the many factors that have a profound effect on our health, including the environment, education and the gun violence crisis. To achieve this goal, we need to work with an even broader range of partners. When we unite, tremendous success follows.

During National Public Health Week, April 4-10, communities across the country will coordinate local events, educate the public and advocate for meaningful change. For 21 years, APHA has served as the lead organizer of National Public Health Week — and the campaign is just one of our many programs and initiatives.

APHA strengthens the profession of public health; fosters understanding, engagement and support for key public health issues; and directly influences public policy to improve global health. APHA champions the health of all people and all communities.
