The New York State Public Health Association is an affiliated association of the American Public Health Association (APHA). Since 1918, we have collaborated with APHA to grow stronger as organizations, to share expertise, influence, and resources, and to advocate for common priorities at the local, state, and federal levels.

APHA is the national voice of public health and champions the health of all people and all communities. They strengthen the profession of public health; share the latest research and information, promote best practices and advocate for public health issues and policies grounded in research. APHA is the only organization that combines a 140-plus year perspective, the ability to influence federal policy to improve the public’s health and a member community from all public health disciplines and over 40 countries.

APHA publishes the American Journal of Public Health and The Nation’s Health, convenes an Annual Meeting and Exposition where thousands of participants share the latest public health research and leads public awareness campaigns such as Get Ready and National Public Health Week. Learn more at
