The Value of Public Health

Public health is the art, practice and science of protecting and improving the health of the community. Public health is about what makes us healthy, what makes us sick, and what we can do together about it. When we think about health, what often comes to mind is the individual and ways he or she can stay healthy. Public health shifts the focus to the community – from “me” to “all of us”.
