According to the American Public Health Association (APHA), the United States spends more and receives less when it comes to health care and public health outcomes. As part of National Public Health Week, public health advocates will rally to overcome this challenge by engaging in a new initiative to make the United States the healthiest Nation in one generation by 2030. Individuals can sign a pledge to help support this initiative. Daily themes connected to this effort will be a major highlight of the week-long observance.
The year 2015 marks the 20th anniversary of APHA coordinating National Public Health Week. APHA officials note that the accomplishments of the public health community during the last two decades are significant.
However, to continue improving the health of the United States and become the healthiest Nation in one generation by 2030, “we need to continue our work with health care organizations and find innovative solutions,” said Mr. Harris.
