Public health is a field for people who care about the greater good of human beings. If that sounds self-important, consider this: Millions of people are alive today, thanks to a handful of public health initiatives, such as vaccination programs, motor vehicle safety laws, restrictions on the use of tobacco, family planning, safe food and sanitation issues, mother and pediatric health projects, prevention and cure of infectious diseases and clean air and water standards. The field of public health is constantly evolving in response to the needs of communities and populations around the world. The mission of public health is to improve the conditions and behaviors that affect health so that all people can attain it. That mission includes not only the practice of public health policy, but the research of public health issues and the education of future leaders who eventually will translate that research into practices and policies to improve the health of people regionally, nationally and globally.
The work of public health professionals is important because public health initiatives affect people every day in every part of the world. It addresses broad issues that can affect the health and well-being of individuals, families, communities, populations and societies (both now and for generations to come). Master of Public health has a real and lasting positive effect on people, e.g.; helps promote a healthy environment, is a moral and ethical imperative, these program have led to; increased life expectancies, worldwide reductions in infant and child mortality, eradication or reduction of many communicable & non-communicable diseases, increasing health consciousness and also health education among different community people. The Master of Public Health (MPH) degree prepare students to help improve the health of the general public. However, they come at this goal from very different perspectives. An MPH program trains students to become public health practitioners who work in government, at non-profits, or in industry to work with communities, implement and evaluate public health programs, and/or help raise public awareness of best health care practices.
