New Fact Sheet: Model Aquatic Health Code (MAHC) Network

The purpose of the Model Aquatic Health Code (MAHC) Network is to raise awareness about and increase the use of the MAHC, an extensive resource developed by the CDC, state and local public health partners, and aquatics professionals. The MAHC provides science- and best practices-based guidance on decreasing the risk of recreational water illness, drowning, and pool chemical injury. The MAHC Network aims to engage current state and local MAHC users, subject matter experts, and those seeking support to use the MAHC.

NACCHO has a new MAHC Network Fact Sheet providing key information about:

  • the purpose, background and uses of the MAHC;
  • benefits of participating in the MAHC Network; and
  • information on how to become a MAHC Network member.

One of the cornerstones of the Network is a bi-monthly webinar co-hosted by NACCHO and the CDC, which highlights examples, challenges, and successes associated with adopting the MAHC from the perspective of state and local health departments. View the most recent webinar from May 17, 2016 about taking the first steps to MAHC adoption, here.
