2004 National Public Health Week

Throughout the week, APHA will highlight on-the-ground examples of local projects using community projects/interventions to reverse the trends in health disparities. In addition to promoting community-based success stories, APHA also will use NPHW to offer health professionals, the private and public sector and communities projects/interventions to help in the battle to eliminate all types of health disparities including but not limited to

  • Ethnic and racial,
  • Geographical,
  • Disease specific,
  • Community infrastructure and resources
  • Environmental justice,
  • Health literacy,
  • Workforce diversity in the health care system
  • Age,
  • Gender, and
  • Sexual Orientation

Together, we can take a big leap forward in ending health disparities wherever they exist!
