Delivering on the Promise of Public Health for All
Strategic plan FY2024 - FY2029
Public health is inherently meant to benefit everyone, everywhere. But barriers—including systemic racism, health disparities, and rampant
misinformation—stand in the way of progress.
We developed our new five-year strategic plan to break down these barriers and deliver on the promise of public health for all through leadership in public health education, research, and practice.
Letter from dean fallin
The past several years have been an incredible time for public health. Our global society has faced enormous health challenges, and also seen great successes. The common thread across many of these recent public health triumphs is the people—researchers and practitioners who are passionate about making the world a healthy place to live and thrive.
