Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Public health aims to provide the necessary conditions for a population to be healthy.(1,2) Public health balances such lofty ideals as health, happiness, and productivity with pragmatic problem solving-metaphorically, keeping its head in the clouds and its feet on the ground. Public health attempts to see health problems in their entirety, and there is often no better way to cope with the totality of a health problem than by preventing it from occurring in the first place. Therefore, prevention of illness is intrinsic to the work of public health. (Am J Public Health. Published online ahead of print November 15, 2012: e1-e3. doi:10.2105/AJPH.2012.301019).
