APHA's Center for Public Health Policy highlights the connections between communities — where we live, work, play and learn — and our collective health. We advance evidence-based policies and practices to address the social determinants of health and create health equity for all. We serve as a catalyst for positive change by influencing public policy at all levels of government and within the private sector. With an experienced staff and a vast network of diverse partners, we create resources that support APHA’s central challenge: To create the healthiest nation in one generation.
The Center is leading APHA's Year of Climate Change and Health.
