“Public health promotes and protects the health of people and the communities where they live, learn, work and play.”
- AMERICAN PUBLIC HEALTH ASSOCIATION
The function of public health is to protect and promote the conditions in which all people can be healthy. This includes ensuring children receive a strong start through maternal care, nutrition, and family planning. It also encompasses identifying and tracking disease, protecting food and water supplies, educating the public about health issues, and preparing for and responding to disease outbreaks and disasters.
