Social Protection Resource Centre

Public health is the science and systems designed to create community, statewide and nationwide conditions that promote health, prevent disease, and encourage healthy behaviors across the entire population. Good health results not only from proper medical care but also from efforts to craft and implement public policies and programs to protect and improve the health of all people. Examples of public health efforts include educating the public about healthier choices, promoting physical activity and fitness, preventing disease outbreaks and the spread of infectious diseases, ensuring safe food and water in communities, preparing for emergency, preventing injury, treating water with fluoride for oral and dental health, and creating smoke-free environments and discouraging tobacco use. SPRC aims to work in the domain of policymaking and highlight public health issues and create awareness among communities regarding the subject through its hardcore research.
