Health disparities among New Yorkers are large, persistent and increasing. Public Health Solutions (PHS) exists to change that trajectory, and support vulnerable New York City families in achieving optimal health and building pathways to reach their potential.
PHS is unique in our ability to provide boots-on-the-ground services in high-need communities, serve as a conduit of accountability for hundreds of community-based organizations tackling major public health issues across the five boroughs, and bridge the gap between healthcare and communities.
We focus on a wide range of public health issues that overwhelmingly affect the ability of underserved New Yorkers to live their healthiest life. These issues include food and nutrition, health insurance, maternal and child health, reproductive and sexual health, tobacco control, and HIV/AIDS.
