National Public Health Week

APHA says that despite our best efforts, Americans are not as healthy as they should be. Although we spend more on health care than any other country, the health system is failing and our nation is falling behind in many important measures of what it means to be healthy. We have reached a point where we must examine our health system and the foundation upon which it stands. We have the potential to greatly improve our population’s health in the future.

National Public Health Week 2010

If every one of us commits to promoting good health in our communities, we can create a ripple effect from coast to coast. Through just one neighborhood that makes its public parks accessible, one municipality that launches a bike-helmet safety program, one group of people who join together to bring fresh foods to school, or one health center that offers a vaccination program, we can create a collage of public health successes across the country.

World Health Day 2010

World Health Day will focus on urbanization and health. With the campaign "1000 cities - 1000 lives", events will be organized worldwide calling on cities to open up streets for health activities. Stories of urban health champions will be gathered to illustrate what people are doing to improve health in their cities.

World Health Day 2011

Among the casualties in emergencies, disasters and other crises (natural, biological, technological, or societal and conflict-related) are often health workers, facilities and services. This, in turn, deprives affected populations of vital health services that can be the difference between life and death.
