Our Partners in Public Health

  • Public Health Foundation Of India


Health is physical, mental or social wellbeing, according to WHO. Public health systems ensure we achieve this goal of overall well being. Public health is different from clinical health systems which are basically targeted to specific individual health, Public health on other hand is on the population level.

Public health is usually classified into three major segments.

  • Prevention - before health issues occur, can be awareness, vaccination etc.

  • Promotion - promoting better health behaviors, improving other social determinants like education and infrastructure.

  • Protection - controlling diseases, managing health emergencies etc.

Public health takes into consideration unhealthy as well as healthy people and tries to improve in all the segments for providing a healthy lifestyle for all humans.
