Public Health

Public Health can be broadly defined as programs and policies to assure and promote population health. Narrower definitions may focus on the health infrastructure and activities of governments (federal, state, and local); on the subspecialty of medicine concerned primarily with community or population health; on the agencies charged with protecting and promoting the health of the public, such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA); or on publicly financed health programs and services, such as Medicare and Medicaid and grant programs supported by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA).

The Forum's public health programming fit mostly within the broad definition of public health, encompassing topics as diverse as preparedness to respond to health threats; the social and environmental determinants of health; public health programs, such as vaccinations and the Ryan White program; demonstrations and initiatives supported by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI); and efforts by states, communities, and health care providers to improve population health.
