Public Health Logo
NACCHO developed a national identity for public health departments to raise awareness of the value of governmental public health. Like other public services that protect the community and respond in times of crisis, public health departments should be visible and understood by the community it serves.
The national identity offers public health departments a common visual symbol and message that immediately and consistently identifies the people and work of public health departments. Only when health departments across the country embrace the national identity will the goal to become universally recognized and understood be achieved.
Building Visibility for your Health Department
Every day, public health department staff perform duties in a way that is invisible to the people in the communities they serve. Used consistently and over time, the national identity for public health departments will help position your health department on par with the other first responders in your community, raise awareness of the value of public health among policymakers and the public, and increase the morale of your staff.
Using the National Identity for Public Health Departments
Use of the national identity for public health departments is entirely voluntary. It can be used alone or in conjunction with a health department's existing identity.
These resources provide everything you need to know about the national identity to educate yourselves, your stakeholders, and your staff.
