NYSACHO acts as the advocate for New York State by taking and practicing an active role at the national level through 100% membership for New York State counties in the National Association of City and County Health Officials (NACCHO) and participation with other SACCHOs (state county health officials associations) in advocating for local health departments needs with federal policymakers.
At the state-level, NYSACHO acts as an advocate for local health departments in the legislative and regulatory arenas, through tracking and analysis of existing and proposed state and federal legislation and regulations impacting public health and related issues and the development of position papers and policy recommendations on behalf of its membership. NYSACHO works closely with the New York State Association of Counties (NYSAC), in the development of health-related legislative issues.
