About This Resource

About This Resource

The news links included in this database are identified and categorized by NACCHO staff and consultants who are familiar with the issues of interest to both local health departments and the larger public health community. The focus of these stories is primarily local health departments, but also include other entities such as local boards of health, health districts, community health programs, and other public health partners. News sources searched regularly include all publications indexed by Nexis®, print and online publications indexed by Google News, and other reputable print and online public health news sources, such as Kaiser Health News, Harvard World Health News, and The Nation's Health.

News links are live at the time they are added to the database. Depending on the original news source, many will expire after a few days, weeks or months. We are unable to archive articles permanently.

Given that this news resource is driven by a human-powered search engine, submissions are welcome. NACCHO staff and consultants will review all submissions and determine appropriateness.  Please send all submissions to Becky Wexler at
