 We hold the following values to be true, guiding the core of our work:

  • Public health's central focus is on the health of the population and the environment, ensuring healthy people in healthy communities.
  • Public health programs and policies must be evidence-based.
  • Public health's primary focus is on health promotion and disease and injury prevention.
  • Public health recognizes the social and biological determinants of health, and the right of all people to optimum health.
  • The public's health requires the ongoing collaboration of public and private entities, interdisciplinary teams, and the involvement of all segments of the public.

NHPHA also serves as the fiscal agent to the NH Oral Health Coalition.
