The Essential Elements of Local Public Health provides updates and information from NACCHO’s Environmental Health and Infectious Disease portfolios, which include a range of projects that influence policy with federal decision makers and develop practical solutions that help local health departments build safe, sustainable communities. NACCHO supports local health departments in fostering a safe and healthful environment that promotes human health and well-being, in ensuring capacity to respond to and control infectious diseases, and in development of innovative tools and resources. Through advocacy and communications efforts, NACCHO works to ensure that the values and concerns of local health departments are represented within state, local, and federal agencies.
