The Public Health Law Map is an ongoing project to bring public health law information to public health practitioners, their lawyers, and students of public health, and the general public. It is being done as an online resource so that it can be updated and to make as widely available as possible. It is not a substitute for legal advice, and since state law varies, it is not a specific guide for any state. For information on how to use the Map, see:
As the Public Health Law Map evolves, the URLS for some pages may change, but every effort will be made to keep them static so that links will be good through time. Since there will be many changes while the Map is in the Beta stage, please link only to the home page:
Once the development period is over, links to subtopic pages should be stable.
