Public Health Under Siege: Improving Policy in Turbulent Times
Public health is under assault — through continuous defunding, rising anti-science sentiment, and the rolling back of community health gains. Now more than ever, the field needs bold action on its behalf.
Public Health Under Siege: Improving Policy in Turbulent Times serves as a guide for supporting and defending public health, starting from the ground up. Going beyond national policy, the book uses real-world examples to demonstrate how addressing inequities at the local level can influence population health.
Only policy can fix what policy has broken. Published by the de Beaumont Foundation in partnership with APHA Press, Public Health Under Siege offers a timely prescription for the nation’s health crises, centering policy as the solution.
