Our Partners

APHA is actively creating partnerships that give our members and supporters opportunities to engage in established programs. We also work to inspire new programs by sharing success stories from activities across the country. The following programs highlight the current work in progress and represent the limitless opportunities to engage with community partners in ways to address social and environmental barriers to health.

Planning and Public Health

Plan4Health is a partnership between APHA and the American Planning Association in 37 communities across the country. The program strengthens relationships between public health and planning professionals in order to improve community access to health and nutrition. Local coalitions comprised of schools, parks and recreation departments, non-profits, universities and others work to build local capacity to address population health goals and promote the inclusion of health in non-traditional sectors.

Cross-Sector Partnerships for Sustainable Change

50 communities are competing to show measurable improvements in healthy behaviors, community safety, built environment, social/economic factors and environmental exposures. In the Healthiest Cities and Counties Challenge, $1.5 million will be awarded through a partnership between the Aetna Foundation, APHA and NACo, in collaboration with CEOs for Cities.

Healthy Housing

This article from The Nation’s Health highlights examples of public health officials working with the housing industry to improve health.
