The Arizona Public Health Training Center (AzPHTC) is part of the Western Region Public Health Training Center (WRPHTC), a consortium of training centers that is funded by Health and Human Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). The consortium consists of Arizona, Nevada, California, Hawaii and US Affiliated Pacific Islands.
Our mission is to assess, develop and deliver responsive competency-based training to current and future public health professionals, community leaders and community partners in Arizona through community engagement, education and training activities that strengthen the public health infrastructure.
We fulfill this mission by specifically collaborating with the public health workforce that provides services in rural/frontier areas, to members of Native American Tribes, to communities along the US-Mexico border, and to underserved populations in Arizona’s major metropolitan areas. This is where health disparities are greatest and training opportunities are least available. The center serves Arizona’s 15 counties and 22 federally recognized Native American tribes in the state.
