Public health is "the science and art of preventing disease, prolonging life and promoting health through the organized efforts and informed choices of society, organizations, public and private, communities and individuals. The population in question can be as small as a handful of people, or as large as all the inhabitants of several continents . Public health incorporates the interdisciplinary approaches of epidemiology and health services. environmental health, community health, behavioral health, health economics, public policy, insurance medicine and occupational safety and health are other important subfields.
Modern public health practice requires multidisciplinary teams of public health workers and professionals including physicians specializing in public health/community medicine/infectious disease, medical assistants or Assistant Medical Officers, public health nurses, medical microbiologists, environmental health officers / public health inspectors, dental hygienists and nutritionists, veterinarians, public health engineers, public health lawyers, community development workers, communications experts, and others.
Public health refers to all organized measures to prevent disease, promote health, and prolong life among the population as a whole. Its activities aim to provide conditions in which people can be healthy and focus on entire populations, not on individual patients or diseases. Thus, public health is concerned with the total system and not only the eradication of a particular disease. The three main public health functions are:
•The assessment and monitoring of the health of communities and populations at risk to identify health problems and priorities.
•The formulation of public policies designed to solve identified local and national health problems and priorities.
•To assure that all populations have access to appropriate and cost-effective care, including health promotion and disease prevention services.
Public health professionals monitor and diagnose the health concerns of entire communities and promote healthy practices and behaviours to ensure that populations stay healthy. One way to illustrate the breadth of public health is to look at some notable public health campaigns:
•Vaccination and control of infectious diseases
•Safer and healthier foods
•Safe drinking water
•Healthier mothers and babies and access to family planning
•Decline in deaths from coronary heart disease and stroke
•Recognition of tobacco use as a health hazard.
