The This is Public Health (TIPH) campaign was created by the Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health (ASPPH) to brand public health and raise awareness of how public health affects individuals, families, communities, and populations. The simple statement – This is Public Health - has proven to be a powerful tool in raising awareness about and support for public health efforts. Join this global effort to promote public health awareness.


This is Public Health promotes public health awareness through social media, which allows users to interact with the campaign via Facebook or Instagram. Take photos of public health efforts, issues, or events and share your photos on social media by using #thisispublichealth. Stay up to date with photo contests, monthly challenges, and campaign activities by following us on social media.
