Public Health Authority

Background   As part of a grant between the American Public Health Association and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to mobilize the public health community to address these challenges to public health authority, APHA will work in three main areas.

  • First, to increase awareness of current and future legislative threats to public health authority in the public health community, including with APHA leadership, state affiliates, sections, caucuses, and partners. 
  • Second, APHA will work closely with a select group of state and regional Affiliates to provide additional resources targeted for collective action by our partners.
  • Third, APHA will work with its project and public health partners to mobilize public and multi- sectoral partners to act to protect public health now and to begin to build support for the resilient, equitable system we need in the future. 

To accomplish this goal, we are working with partners to focus on six key states to engage more carefully in this work. They are: Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Montana, Pennsylvania, and Oklahoma.
