PDPH newsletters are available on this webpage and are distributed via email to registered recipients of the Health Alert Network (HAN) and the Community Response Partner Network (CRPN) who select to receive them. 

  • The Health Alert Network is an emergency notification system for public health, health care, and emergency response personnel. The Philadelphia Department of Public Health uses the HAN to deliver time-critical, health-related information to designated health partners.
  • The Community Response Partner Network is comprised of community organization leadership and members who can disseminate information to their members and neighbors during public health emergencies that affect the City of Philadelphia. These individuals will receive notifications about public health emergencies and will be asked to share this information with staff and the communities they serve.
