The American Public Health Association (APHA)
APHA champions the health of all people and all communities, strengthens the public health profession and speaks out for public health issues and policies backed by science. APHA is the only organization that influences federal policy, and has a 140-plus year perspective and brings together members from all fields of public health.
For more information on APHA and how to connect or become a member please visit their website at
APHA members develop policy statements on key public health topics, from obesity control to breastfeeding to control of infectious diseases to eliminating health disparities. Proposed policy statements only become official APHA policy statements after approval by the APHA Governing Council at the Annual Meeting. You can learn more about APHA's policy statements and how you can use them here.
