What is Public Health?
The World Health Organization defines public health as " a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, not merely the absence of disease or infirmity."
Public health carries out its mission through organized, interdisciplinary efforts that address the physical, mental and environmental health concerns of communities and populations at risk for disease and injury. Its mission is achieved through the application of health promotion, disease prevention and interventions designed to improve and enhance quality of life.
