The Mission of WSALPHO is to bring together the leadership of local public health departments and districts to encourage improvement in the quality, capacity, and leadership of local public health jurisdictions (LHJ) to provide a more effective, efficient and consistency public health infrastructure throughout the state. Unlike the Washington State Public Health Association, WSALPHO is not an advocacy organization.

Core Activities:

  • Educate and inform policy makers of the core public health functions and impact at local, state, and when appropriate, federal levels. 
  • Advise the Washington State Department of Health and other governmental agencies regarding public health issues in the state. 
  • Participate with other entities to advance public health in the state.
  • Contribute to the ongoing development and implementation of the Public Health Improvement Partnership (PHIP).
