The American College of Preventive Medicine Policy Recommendations on Public Health Funding

The American College of Preventive Medicine Policy Committee makes policy guidelines and recommendations on Preventive Medicine and Public Health topics for Public Health decision makers. After a review of the current evidence available in 2016, the College is providing policy recommendations designed to inform public health investment. The American College of Preventive Medicine advocates for policies that recognize the health and economic value of public health funding and promote investment in these vital capabilities. Shortfalls in public health infrastructure, particularly workforce funding, must be corrected to ensure lasting benefits. Contingency funding for public health emergencies should be established and fully funded to adequately respond to emerging threats.
