Affiliated Organizations

ASTHO is supported by a network of 20 affiliated organizations representing an array of state public health agency leaders. While each affiliate represents a different executive leader within the state and territorial health agencies, all share a common mission to promote and protect the public’s health and prevent illness and injury.

Top leaders from ASTHO and the 20 affiliates serve on ASTHO’s Affiliate Council. The council meets regularly to share information on major initiatives and identify ways the organizations can align to better support states and territories in their efforts to improve public health outcomes.
