Unlike Medicine which is mainly concerned with the treatment of disease in sick individuals, Public Health is the art and science of preventing disease, promoting health, and maintaining the health of the population. The health of people is not only determined on health care services but also on human behavior, nutrition, physical and biological environment, social and economic conditions, genes, etc. Hence the science of public health is interdisciplinary in nature and involves the study of various disciplines such as epidemiology, biostatistics, demography, medicine, microbiology, nutrition, biochemistry, genetics, social and behavioral sciences, and management sciences.
Public Health personnel typically are involved in assessing the health status of the population and in planning, implementation, and monitoring of programs to improve people’s health. They study disease epidemics and take measures to control them. They work at administrative and managerial levels in health organizations of Government, Private, NGO’s, and International agencies like WHO, UNICEF, etc. They are also employed in health research agencies and in academic institutions of Public Health.
