Population health

From WikiMD's Health & Wellness Encyclopedia



Typically, the organised response by society to protect and promote health, and to prevent illness, injury and disability. Population health activities generally focus on:

prevention, promotion and protection rather than on treatment populations rather than on individuals the factors and behaviours that cause illness. In this sense, the term is often used synonymously with public health. It can also refer to the health of particular subpopulations, and comparisons of the health of different populations.
