Public Health Is Where You Are

National Public Health Week brings together communities across the United States to recognize the contributions of public health and highlight issues that are important to improving the health of our nation. A series of activities, events and conversations will engage different people and organizations to promote the importance of public health.

NPHW 2024 Daily Themes

Monday: Civic Engagement
Voting and other forms of civic engagement shape our community and how it allocates resources to support our opportunity for healthy lives. And studies show better public health outcomes in states where more people vote. #NPHW

Tuesday: Healthy Neighborhoods 
Where we live, work and play can have a huge effect on our health. Let’s build healthy neighborhoods with safe places to live, be active and access fresh nutritious food, to provide everyone with the opportunity for healthy lives. #NPHW

Wednesday: Climate Change
Climate change is the most pressing threat to human health. By buying less, supporting green spaces and transitioning to renewable energy, we can lessen the health impacts of climate change. For everyone’s sake, let’s make a change now. #NPHW

Thursday: New Tools and Innovations
Public health is all about preventing disease, diagnosing health conditions and encouraging health and well-being. Let’s take advantage of smartwatches, health apps, telehealth and other innovations to improve the nation’s health. #NPHW 

Friday: Reproductive and Sexual Health
Reproductive and sexual health care have been under attack. Let’s make reproductive care and screening for cancers and STIs common and accessible to all. #NPHW 

Saturday: Emergency Preparedness
Emergency preparedness can protect you and your loved ones. Have a plan & emergency supplies and practice what to do. Consider how you can help local organizations support underserved communities, where disasters often worsen inequities. #NPHW

Sunday: Future of Public Health
Public health's future is all about teaming up with others to end racism and advocate for community well-being. Together, let’s make sure every person has access to the support and care they need for a healthier life. #NPHW
