Communication Toolkit

The Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) developed a communication toolkit for PHEP awardees, champions, and others interested in advancing PHEP program awareness. ASTHO hopes to amplify the public health preparedness community’s voice in order to educate leaders and public health stakeholders about the PHEP accomplishments that keep our communities protected and prepared.

Please use this toolkit and the accompanying template messages and communication products to educate the target audiences listed below about the importance of the PHEP program. If you have feedback or suggestions for improving this toolkit, please contact Heather Misner, ASTHO’s director of preparedness and clinical outreach.
