What is Public Health?

Public Health is defined as “the art and science of preventing disease, prolonging life and promoting health through the organised efforts of society” (Acheson, 1988; WHO). 

The focus of Public Health is not merely on preventing diseases but also in improving other domains of health & wellbeing. At the heart of Public Health, it's about improving the health of communities. If you are keen on knowing more about the Public Health in NUS, look no further!
