The NYSPHA Policy and Advocacy Committee (PAC) is developing a series of NYSPHA Statements of Policy.  Modeled after the American Public Health Association policy statements, they lay out NYSPHA's position on the leading public health issues of the day and are used by the PAC as the basis for determining its advocacy priorities each year.


Promote Social Justice Health Equity

Make New York Commercial Tobacco Free 

Prevent Firearm Injury and Death 

Promote Universal Affordable Universal Health Care 

Promote Immigrant Health

Housing and Homelessness are Public Health Issues 

 Racism is a Public Health Crisis- Pending

 Addressing Climate Change as a Public Health Issue- Pending

 Promote Maternal and Child Health- Pending

 Promote Oral Health- Pending

Please send your ideas for additional statements to the PAC at advocacy@nyspha.org.  We would welcome any NYSPHA members who would like to work on these statements.
