National Public Health Week 2020

National Public Health Week 2020

Everyone deserves to live a long and healthy life while being in a safe environment. To make that possible, the American Public Health Association (APHA) needs to address the causes of poor health and disease risk among individuals and within our communities. 

Where we live, learn, work, worship, and play affects each and every one of us and can determine our health and life expectancy. In the workplace, let's partner across public and private sectors to ensure that decisions are being made with the public's health and well-being in mind. 

Within our communities, we should start new conversations with our neighbors and friends, and become advocates for positive change. Working together, every community can become healthier and can lead to becoming the healthiest nation. The APHA needs your help to get there.

During each day of National Public Health Week, the APHA focuses on a particular public health topic. Then, they identify ways every person can make a difference on that topic. Those areas are critical to future success in creating the healthiest nation, and the APHA says that everyone can do their part to help.

This week is National Public Health Week, and the themes for the week are as follows:

  • Monday: Mental Health - advocate for and promote emotional well-being.
  • Tuesday: Maternal and Child Health - ensure the health of mothers and babies throughout their lifespan.
  • Wednesday: Violence Prevention - reduce personal and community violence.
  • Thursday: Environmental Health - help maintain and protect a healthy planet.
  • Friday: Education - advocate for quality education and schools.
  • Saturday: Healthy Homes - ensure access to affordable and safe housing.
  • Sunday: Economics - advocate for economic empowerment as the key to a healthy life.

Join the observance of National Public Health Week 2020 and become part of a growing movement to create the healthiest nation in one generation. During the week, the APHA will celebrate the power of prevention, advocate for healthy and fair policies, share strategies for successful partnerships and champion the tole of a strong public health system.
