"Public Health School'' is the science and art of preventing disease, prolonging life and promoting health through the organised efforts of society" 
 (Sir Donald Acheson 1988)


Public health practitioners work in collaboration with a wide variety of partners to improve the health of the population, rather than focussing on individuals only.
