  From the definition of public health, one may understand that public health deals with the health of the populations not indi-viduals like medicine. In brief but precisely, public health may be defined as the art and science of preventing disease, prolonging life and promoting health through organized efforts and informed choices of society or organization. Alternatively, public health may also be defined as the application of the practice of epidemiology.

  John M. Last, 1995 defined epidemiology and I quote as follows “Epidemiology is the study of the distribution and determinants of health - related events in specified populations and the applica-tion of this study to control the health problem.”
