Who We Are
As the largest public health nonprofit organization in New York City, Public Health Solutions (PHS) improves health among the city’s most vulnerable populations by tackling social and physical factors that impact New Yorkers’ ability to thrive.
What We Do
Today, PHS serves 200,000+ New Yorkers annually, and we support the work of more than 200 community-based nonprofit organizations. We implement innovative, cost-effective population-based health programs, conduct research providing insight on effective public health interventions, and provide services to government and other nonprofits to address critical public health issues. Together with our colleagues in the social services sector, government, philanthropy and policy organizations, we are thought leaders and cutting-edge public health professionals in New York City and New York State.
Highlights of Our Work
- Provide direct services to over 70,000 New Yorkers a year, primarily families with children. These services address critical needs in low-income communities, including food security and nutrition, maternal-child health services, reproductive and sexual health, quality healthcare access, and tobacco control.
- Through service delivery and funding administration, our network serves 96,000 people living with or at risk of becoming infected with HIV/AIDS.
- Our researchers authored or co-authored 108 articles in peer-reviewed journals and 145 presentations at national and international scientific meetings since 2000.
