What is Advocacy?

We define advocacy as strategic actions taken to drive social, organizational, or policy change on behalf of particular health goals or population health. This encompasses a range of disciplines and practices that effectively engage and inform policymakers, media, and the public to act and embrace evidence-based solutions for public health challenges.

Policy Change

Policy is one of the most powerful tools for ensuring that everyone can have the fairest, most equitable opportunity for a healthy, prosperous life and environment. We will enhance the knowledge and skills of public health professionals to effectively translate the science, engage with decisionmakers, build political support and will, and use data to effectively drive change.

Public health advocacy has the power to improve all lives through evidence-based action.
