About Us
Partnership for the Public's Health:
Catalyzing community momentum for
place-based change

A pioneer in catalyzing place-based environmental change for more than a decade, Partnership for the Public’s Health fosters:


  • Expanding Social Networks

  • We focus on building resilient social networks at the local, state and national level, across lines of class, race, education, age, profession, religion and political affiliation, as the critical path to achieve deep and lasting social transformation.

  • Coordinated Social Action
  • PPH-supported networks unite low income residents and youth and a wide range of diverse interest groups, offering a platform for powerful and focused action, and create opportunities for regional, state, and national change.

  • Equitable Policies and Social Systems
  • PPH networks provide a structure that amplifies local community experience, to influence policy and systems changes for greater health and social equity, and that builds increasingly resilient social networks that carry social action forward to a new level.

    Partnership for the Public’s Health helps communities change the environment for health — increasing access to healthy food and physical activity, creating safer neighborhoods, parks and streets, and building local resident leadership in community decision making.
