public health action: stories

CDC encourages all of its 24 state and city grantees to develop Public Health Actions derived from
activities that lead to the enhancement of public health. Specifically, Public Health Actions describe
four activities:
1.     What was the problem or situation?
2.     How did Pennsylvania’s Environmental Public Health Tracking (PA EPHT) Program become 
3.     What action was taken to resolve the situation?
4.     How did the resolution of the problem lead to specific actions that enhance the public’s health?
PA EPHT regularly reports to CDC on the success of its Public Health Actions. The program is committed to translating all activities supported from its CDC Health Tracking Program to lead to improvements to the community’s public health.
