Summary

Public health is the practice of teaching and training communities in hygiene, nutrition, and basic healthcare, as well as disease control and detection, in order to improve the overall well-being of a community. Public health is preventative, and focuses on predicting and preventing health problems before they occur rather than managing the issues retroactively. However, public health organizations, such as the United States Center for Disease Control (CDC), are the ones who address widespread health crises after they hit.12 The American Public Health Association cites Ebola, health equity, gun violence, substance misuse, suicide, maternal and child health to be public health issues of particular concern worldwide.2 Show References
