Public health refers to all organized measures (whether public or private) to prevent diseases, promote health, and prolong life among the population as a whole. Its activities aim to provide conditions in which people can be healthy and focus on entire populations, not on individual patients or diseases.

Public health problems are increasingly global and require global solutions.
With freer movement of people and human and animal foodstuffs, infectious diseases and contaminated products can rapidly become widely disseminated.
Public Health has never been more important, as we seek to prevent disease and ensure citizens have long and healthy lives.
Public health is about looking after the health of individuals and the population as distinct from dealing directly with the consequences of illness and treating sick individuals. The emphasis is on the prevention of disease and tackling the factors that contribute to illness such as environmental and behavioural factors.
