APHA and the National Environmental Health Partnership Council are pleased to present Investing in a Robust Environmental Health System (PDF), a guide to creating healthy environments for all.
An organization can make a difference. But when we work together, in partnership, we can achieve real change to advance public health. Partnerships in environmental health work together to engage in actions upstream that protect health downstream.
Three of the partnerships APHA convenes with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention provide expertise, scientifically based information and tools that practitioners, the general public and decision-makers can use to help protect environmental health.
NATIONAL ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH PARTNERSHIP COUNCIL
This group strives to support healthy people by working for healthier environments. The Council brings together diverse, executive-level stakeholders to help expand and sustain awareness, education, policies and practices related to environmental health.
ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH & EQUITY COLLABORATIVE
This group of environmental health professionals acts as a unified voice for environmental health. The Collaborative promotes environmental health through resource-sharing and coordinating efforts around priority areas.
TRIBAL PUBLIC AND ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH THINK TANK
The Think Tank is focused on working to promote tribal environmental health, establishing priorities in the field, building partnerships and giving a voice to the communities they serve.
Value of Environmental Health Services
The Value of Environmental Health Services report (PDF), created by members of the National Environmental Health Partnership Council, sheds light on the economic value on the very environmental health services that prevent disease and create healthy, supportive environments.
