State Affiliates

While APHA is the national voice on public health, it could not succeed without the complementary efforts of its State Affiliates. Since 1918, APHA’s 53 state and regional public health associations have championed the same goals as APHA to promote, protect and advocate for the public's health. State Affiliates are independently established and have their own infrastructure, policies, processes and procedures. Each year, APHA Affiliates participate, implement and advocate on behalf of various public health issues through:

  • Annual Meetings
  • Program Development
  • Continuing Education
  • Professional Development
  • Advocating on behalf of good State Public Health Policy and Legislation

Visit your State Affiliate's web page to learn how you can help strengthen local efforts.
