NATIONAL PUBLIC HEALTH WEEK, 2016

-

BY THE PRESIDENT OF

THE UNITED STATES OF

AMERICA

A PROCLAMATION

 

During National Public Health Week, we join together to enhance public health the foundation of our security and well being here at home and around the world. By supporting health professionals and embracing our obligations to promote public health and protect our planet, we can uphold our shared responsibility to preserve the promise of a happy and healthy life for our children and grandchildren.

 

Ensuring all Americans have access to quality, affordable health insurance is imperative for maintaining our public health, and I am proud that 6 years after I signed it, the Affordable Care Act has extended the peace of mind that comes with health coverage to 20 million Americans.
