Right now, the U.S. spends MORE and gets LESS when it comes to health care and public health outcomes. This is the defining challenge of our generation – a challenge that we, the public health community, are uniquely positioned to help overcome.
That’s why, during National Public Health Week 2015, the public health community is rallying around a goal of making the U.S. the Healthiest Nation in One Generation — by 2030.
In April, we’ll create a new groundswell of support for the changes that must be made within our health system to realize this goal.

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.
