National Public Health Week 2017

The 2017 National Public Health Week theme "Healthiest Nation 2030" calls on the public health community to address the many factors that have a profound effect on our health. We must examine the health impacts of climate change, ensure health for all, build a strong public health system, and so much more. To become the healthiest nation in one generation, we need to work with an even broader range of partners. When we unite, tremendous success follows.

During National Public Health Week, April 3-9, communities across the country will coordinate local events, educate the public and advocate for meaningful change. For more than two decades, 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.

Donate today to National Public Health Week. Your donation makes you part of Generation Public Health, APHA's movement to create the healthiest nation in one generation. With your additional support, APHA will ensure National Public Health Week continues to reach every community.
