Public health is “The science and art of preventing disease, prolonging life, and promoting health and efficiency …” -WHO Expert Committee (1952).
Human health is affected by multiple factors such as environment, life style, economic status, education, heredity, availability and accessibility of health services etc., recognized as determinants of health. This is through the application of public health policies and strategies that it is possible to prevent disease, reduce morbidity and mortality, promote health and prolong life span. All around the world, greater emphasis is being given on disease prevention and health promotion as a means of improving health of population and this has created a broad array of opportunities for public health. Career opportunities for public health professionals are available internationally, both in public and private sectors as well as research institutions.
With a sense of deep regard for improving health status and quality of life of the people at large, the college has given priority in producing competent public health graduates and we trust that these graduates will have ample opportunity to carve their careers, as per ever increasing global demand.
