This new report from the Network for Public Health Law, as part of the Act for Public Health Initiative, examines laws and policies being enacted across the U.S. in several key areas that serve as a model for best practices moving forward, including:

·       Governance

·       Funding

·       Health equity

·       Infrastructure

·       Workforce

·       Public health interventions

The breadth and diversity of examples discussed in this report provide ample reason to hope that public health can emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic better prepared and equipped to fulfill its mission to protect and improve the health of the population as a whole in the years to come.
