Health Policy Update Series
One of ASTHO’s core functions is providing our members—health officials of U.S. states, territories, and freely associated states—with public health policy research and analysis important to their jurisdictions. ASTHO’s Federal Government Affairs and State Health Policy teams examine trends and developments in public health law and policy.
Federal Government Affairs provides insightful analysis of federal bills, funding resolutions, and related political developments that directly impact public health in member jurisdictions.
State Health Policy delivers in-depth examination of public health policy in state houses across the country.
The Health Policy Update series is a regular feature on ASTHO's blog and explores a wide range of topics through both a legislative and regulatory lens.
