Environment Section Policy Statements

As members of APHA, we are committed to educating the public about environmental health. We do this by contacting our legislators, commenting on federal proposals, collaborating to advance environmental stewardship, writing policy statements and more.

Policy statements help shape APHA's position on legislation and regulations, help others write briefs and statements about public health issues, highlight the latest research on specific public health topics, and serve as a resource for the general public. We have over 400 policy statements related to the environment in our policy statement database.
