What Does Your Public Health Department Do?
Public Health is all around us. We see it . . .

  • When a restaurant, a day care or a lodging facility is inspected.
  • When educational material is distributed for the purpose of promoting lifestyles and activities that lead to better health.
  • When a child receives immunizations at the health department.
  • When a case of TB is reported and an investigation is conducted to find other people potentially exposed to the infection.
  • When an important source of nutrition for a child is the WIC program.
  • When education and outreach take place to reduce the number of infant deaths.
  • When an onsite sewage system is inspected.
  • When a community works together to identify potential shortcomings and problems relating to the health of its citizens and the environment they live in.

The list could go on and on. Public health is all around us and almost everyone would say that public health activities are important and worthwhile.

Often people confuse public health with healthcare for the poor. Public Health is mostly about those activities and programs that deal with a community or population rather than a particular individual. Public heath is most often about preventing or reducing the seriousness of illness and injury. The outcomes benefit individuals but the focus is on communities and populations.
