What is public health?

Public health is all around us: in the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the foods we eat. Many of the questions of our era involve public health. Are we living healthy lives? How does climate change affect health? Are children getting the nutrition they need to grow? And among the most pressing issues is whether communities have access to affordable, quality healthcare.
