In the United States, public health functions are provided by not only the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) or state and local government bodies but also by NGOs, schools, and a myriad of professional organizations and interest groups.
For example, the alphabet soup of contributors to health policy development, assessment, and assurance includes:
The National Association of City and County Health Officers (NACCHO)
The Association of State and Territorial Health Officers (ASTHO)
The National Association of Local Boards of Health (NALBO)
The American Public Health Association (APHA)
The National Network of Public Health Institutes (NNPHI)
The Public Health Foundation (PHF)
