Each year during the first week of April, the American Public Health Association brings together communities to observe National Public Health Week. The week is dedicated to recognizing the contributions of public health and to highlight issues that are important to improving our nation’s health. The theme of this year’s event which is being held from April 4 – 10th, is Public Health is Where You Are.
To help public health organizations raise awareness of public health and prevention, the APHA has put together tools, guides and other materials.
- Daily Themes for NPHW focus on Racism, Public Health Workforce, Community, Accessibility, Climate Change, Mental Wellness. Visit the daily themes page for factsheets on these topics and more information.
