The New Mexico Public Health Association envisions New Mexico as a place where the resources, socioeconomic conditions, and environment exist in which ALL people can be healthy. Our mission is to promote public health practice, policies, and systems that support health equity in New Mexico. We accomplish our mission by providing a forum for sharing research and practices, and serving as a base for leadership development, networking, and action.
