What is Public Health?


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" (1920, C.E.A. Winslow).


Modern public health practice requires multidisciplinary teams of professionals including physicians specializing in public health/community medicine/infectious disease, epidemiologists, biostatisticians, public health nurses, medical microbiologists, environmental health officers / public health inspectors, dental hygienists, dietitians and nutritionists, veterinarians, public health engineers, public health lawyers, sociologists, community development workers, communications officers, and others. (World Health Organization Preamble to the Constitution).

Strange is our situation here on Earth. Each of
us comes for a short visit, not knowing why, yet sometimes seeming to divine a
purpose. From the standpoint of daily life, however, there is one thing we do
know: that man is here for the sake of other men-above all for those upon whose
smiles and well-being our own happiness depends.
-- Albert Einstein.
