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.
APHA publishes the American Journal of Public Health and The Nation's Health newspaper. At our Annual Meeting & Exposition, thousands of people share the latest public health research. We lead public awareness campaigns such as Get Ready and National Public Health Week. Together, we are creating the healthiest nation in one generation.
