Advocacy

New Hampshire State HouseLaws, regulations, and public policy can have a major effect on public health. The NH Public Health Association utilizes education and advocacy to help enact effective policies that support both population-based and individual health throughout our state and communities.

The NHPHA Board is empowered to adopt positions and opinions on behalf of the association. Policy positions adopted by the Board become the basis for NHPHA's advocacy efforts.

Below is a summary of NHPHA's successes and challenges during this past legislative session. Including the forwarding SB 104 which set out to fund a community health worker (CHW) in each regional public health network, working with partners advocating for SB 140 to increase funds for primary prevention for families for services such as family resource centers and family support services through community collaborations, and more.
