What is Public Health?
Public Health works to PREVENT and mitigate disease and disability in the population. When public health works correctly, you will not even notice its existence. Clean drinking water, safe food, and control of disease are public health objectives that are always at work. Public health is always preparing for what might come next while also improving our health in the present. Reduction of tobacco use, safety belt use, and promotion of healthy lifestyles are some of the current public health initiatives.
