Scope and Importance:

Public health focuses on the health of the public in aggregate.  It addresses monitoring and surveillance of nutritional status and nutritional environments in communities or populations at risk, identifies and analyses behavioral, sociocultural, economic, political, and environmental determinants of nutrition-related public health. The 20th century provided horrendous examples of violence, neglect, injustice, suffering and death that resulted from disregard of fundamental values and goals of public health, also Public health has many enormous achievements to its credit adding many years of life expectancy globally. The ultimate goal of public health is the biologic, physical and mental well-being of the society by prolonging life and promoting healthy lifestyle. It includes pre-planning of natural and man-made disasters. Various health systems around the world incorporate public health activities and responsibilities differently, depending on the structure, financing, and availability of health care in a population. The modern public health also deals with disease transmission by conducting research that contributes to generalizable knowledge. Public health has a challenging future which requires building public credibility in face of opposition and reluctance to immunize or to adopt healthy lifestyles, unjustified delayed adoption of effective prevention methods, and challenges and rollbacks due to anti-public health activism.
