CDC's Public Health Law Program

The Public Health Law Program (PHLP) works to improve the health of the public through law by developing law-related tools and providing legal technical assistance to public health practitioners and policy makers in state, tribal, local, and territorial jurisdictions. Program staff also facilitate collaboration within the public health law community through a listserv, contact directories, and training sessions.
