Advocacy Contributions

Advocacy Contributions support the APHA’s efforts to reach out to legislators and policy makers on what matters most to you! APHA, in coordination with its members and state affiliates, works with key decision-makers to shape public policy to address today's ongoing public health concerns such as protecting funding for core public health programs and services, eliminating health disparities and ensuring access to care.  APHA is also working to address emerging public health issues including pandemic flu preparedness, children's health, environmental health, managed care, disease control, bioterrorism, international health and tobacco control.
