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 all communities. We strengthen the profession of public health, promote best practices and share the latest public health research and information. We are the only organization that influences federal policy, has a 140-plus year perspective and brings together members from all fields of public 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.
