The Vermont Public Health Association (VtPHA) is a membership organization whose purpose is to protect and promote personal, community and environmental health within our State.
VtPHA is a statewide membership organization that seeks to positively influence the health of all Vermonters and provide an important voice on public health issues at the national, state and local level.
We recognize that we live and work in Wôbanakik, Dawnland, the historical and current unceded homeland of the Abenaki people.
We acknowledge that much of this country’s culture and economic growth and development has been made possible by the labor of enslaved African and their ascendants.
VtPHA Statement on Roe v. Wade Overturned
The Supreme Court’s decision of Roe v. Wade reverses the constitutional right to an abortion. This action creates a national crisis that will endanger the health and welfare of women and individuals with a uterus and deny them their rights to access full reproductive health care which includes abortion services.
The VtPHA applauds our Vermont Congressional Delegation and our Vermont State Legislators who are working to codify abortion rights and ensure complete autonomy in matters of reproductive health at both the state and national level. The VtPHA supports Vermont’s Proposition 5, that, if passed in November 2022, will amend the Constitution of the State of Vermont to ensure that every Vermonter is afforded personal reproductive liberty.
Please refer to the VtPHA policy on Women’s Reproductive Rights and the APHA statement on the overturning of Roe v. Wade.
The situation and the public health response to the pandemic of the COVID-19 virus continues to change. Information for public health professionals, providers, and the public is being revised to reflect the latest knowledge and guidance about this disease. For the most up-to-date information on public health and clinical response, please visit the Vermont Department of Health website or the Centers for Disease Control website.
