What is Public Health?
Public health is an independent, strongly interdisciplinary, empirical science. The main focus is not the health of an individual but rather the health of a population. Research and educational programs in public health address the conditions required for health and the causes of disease, the interactions between people and their natural, technical and social environment, health promotion and disease management, the achievements of the health system and the possibility to guide and direct health care politics and to evaluate and secure the quality of health care delivery.
