Building Bridges to Better Health

We may be physically distant from each other, but now it’s more important than ever to come together. That’s why our 2021 theme was “Building Bridges to Better Health.” 

Help us keep the conversation going

In the midst of the most challenging public health crisis of our lifetimes, it's more important than ever to celebrate public health.

  • Our NPHW fact sheets are available year-round on the NPHW website so we can keep the momentum and learning going. Learn more about this year's daily themes and how you can be part of the movement for science, action, health and justice.
  • APHA hosted NPHW events entirely online this year, to protect our partners and neighbors during the COVID-19 pandemic. Learn more about what APHA is doing, and what you can do to prepare without panic.
  • Check out our NPHW series on Public Health Newswire. Our guest posts highlight the daily themes and feature video messages from the likes of former EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy and APHA President José Ramón Fernández-Peña.
  • Help us continue to thank public health for all the hard work everyone's doing to keep our communities safe.

Working together, we can build healthier communities and eventually, the healthiest nation. We need your help to get there.
