Creating health equity is a guiding priority and core value of APHA. In March, APHA published a new report highlighting the efforts of state and local health agencies and one tribal nation to address the root causes of health inequities.
Each year NPHW provides new tools and tips to help you effectively shape and promote activities and key messages during the week. The NPHW 2015 Brochure and Toolkit will provide you with talking points around this year's theme, activity suggestions for each day of NPHW, tips for planning a successful NPHW event, strategies for garnering media coverage and using social media and ways to advocate for public health issues. We hope these resources will help you engage your communities to celebrate and promote public health and prevention.
The American Public Health Association champions the health of all people and communities. We strengthen the profession of public health; foster understanding, engagement and support for key public health issues; and directly influence public policy to improve global health.
During the first full week of April each year, APHA brings together communities across the United States to observe National Public Health Week as a time to recognize the contributions of public health and highlight issues that are important to improving our nation. For nearly 20 years, APHA has served as the organizer of NPHW. Every year, the Association develops a national campaign to educate the public, policymakers and practitioners about issues related to each year's theme.
