National Public Health Week (NPHW) is a time to recognize the contributions of public health and highlight the issues that are important to improving our nation's health, important issues now more than ever. Every year, the American Public Health Association (APHA) observes NPHW during the first full week of April.
During each day of National Public Health Week, APHA asks the nation to focus on a particular public health topic and to identify ways each of us can make a difference on that topic. These areas are critical to our future success in creating the healthiest nation, and everyone can do their part to help.
