Who we are
RIPHA brings together professionals in a unique, multi-disciplinary environment for idea exchange, study, and action. Membership in RIPHA is open to any individual employed or interested in the field of public health.
Since its inception in 1996, RIPHA has been guided by four principles:
Racism and Public Health
Racism and associated violence are public health issues that should have no place in our world. The Rhode Island Public Health Association stands with the Black Lives Matter movement and all of those fighting systemic institutionalized racism and injustices. Public health goes beyond vaccines and contact tracing to include social determinants of health - the conditions in our environment that impact health. We recognize racism and violence as social determinants of health that are born of ignorance, bigotry, and hatred. End racism now - there is no alternative.
The Rhode Island Public Health Association (RIPHA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, tax-exempt, professional organization that works toward the advancement of public health. The vision of RIPHA is a safe and healthier Rhode Island and the mission of RIPHA is to influence public health policy and promote public health practice in Rhode Island.
