The Public Health Education and Health Promotion section, or PHEHP, is one of 25 primary sections and special interest groups within the American Public Health Association (APHA).

PHEHP, with around 4,000 members, is the largest section of the Public Health association worldwide. Like all sections within APHA, PHEHP is governed by a group of elected volunteers who hold offices for terms of varying length. Section officers include a chair, chair-elect, secretary, secretary-elect and immediate past chair. In addition, section councilors and governing councilors represent the members and concerns of the section within the larger organization. Section committees, led by volunteers from the Section, are where much of the "work" of the Section is accomplished.
