Supporting NH's Regional Public Health Networks

Public Health NetworksSupporting NH's Regional Public Health Networks


New Futures provides policy and advocacy support to New Hampshire’s Regional Public Health Networks (RPHNs), a group of 13 Public Health Networks that span every community in the state. RPHNs work together to integrate multiple public health initiatives and services into one system, so that they can be mobilized when needed.

Why It Matters

Public Health Networks are essential to have in place in order to protect and promote the health of all people in all communities. Services include prevention of substance use disorders, continuum of care systems development focused on increasing awareness and access of substance misuse prevention, treatment, and recovery services, public health emergency preparedness, strategic planning to mitigate the health impacts of climate change, and other disease prevention and health promotion activities. Health equity is essential so that everyone has a fair opportunity to achieve optimal health and well-being.
