The Public Health Way
The Public Health Way is the title that we give to the philosophy by which we operate as a public health unit. The Public Health Way sets out how we view the world, the nature of what we do and why we practice in the way we do.
This chapter also provides an overview on the roots of public health and our current role, some discussion on the goals and functions of public health, a brief introduction to population vs. individual health strategies.
