APHA: Pledge to Create a Healthier America
Join Generation Public Health.
Take the pledge to help create a healthier America!
Despite the tremendous improvements public health has made in the 20th Century, Americans live shorter lives and suffer more health issues than people in other high-income countries. For example we rank 34th in life expectancy. We need to work together to improve health and well-being. That’s why APHA created Generation Public Health. We’re a growing movement of people, organizations and communities collaborating across sectors to create the healthiest nation in one generation.
We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity for a long and healthy life. We promise to support efforts to improve the social and environmental factors that affect everyone’s health and limit the ability for many people to make healthy choices.
It is only when we come together that we are strong enough to create the healthiest nation in one generation.
