Public health is the process that gathers, interprets, and translates knowledge of health factors amongst the population into effective action.

Public health refers to all organized measures (whether public or private) to prevent disease, 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. Thus, public health is concerned with the total system and not only the eradication of a particular disease. WHO consider that the three main public health functions are:

Public health professionals monitor and diagnose the health concerns of entire communities and promote healthy practices and behaviours to ensure that populations stay healthy. (World Health Organisation, http://www.who.int/trade/glossary/story076/en/).

For information on healthy living please visit the Health Promotion pages on this site which can be found here.

A range of reports and information are publicly available, including the Medical Officer of Health annual reports and Lifestyle Surveys (see below).
