The official journal of the U.S. Public Health Service and the U.S. Surgeon General since 1878.
Published by the Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health (ASPPH) and SAGE Publications, Public Health Reports (PHR) has been a resource for the public health community for over one hundred years. PHR publishes bi-monthly on major topics in public health, such as infectious diseases and immunization, tobacco control, injuries and violence, chronic disease control, public health methodology, and issues of interest to state and local health departments. The journal has departments focused on public health law and public health schools and education, and features special commentaries by the Surgeon General and executives within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Supplemental issues are published two to five times per year on special topics. Recent supplements have covered routine HIV screening in clinical settings, expanded access to hepatitis B and hepatitis C testing and care, and public health preparedness.
PHR complements ASPPH’s mission to transform public health by strengthening and promoting the education, research, service, and practice activities of schools and programs. Together, we advocate for investments needed to advance population health and more effective public health policies.
