The National Environmental Public Health Tracking Network is a web-based system of integrated health, exposure, and hazard information data from a variety of national, state, and city sources. Data on the Network has afforded many states the ability to effectively identify trends in health conditions potentially related to the environment and drive actions that improve public health.
ASTHO partnered with CDC’s National Tracking Program in 2002 to serve as the voice of non-funded state and territorial health departments by communicating messages, success stories, and the benefits of the Tracking Network to public health officials and policymakers of non-funded states. Since then, ASTHO conducted both regional and national webinars on environmental public health tracking and, through its fellowship program, has helped strengthen partnerships between many CDC grantees and non-funded sites working to track, prevent, and control environmentally-related disease.
