We must also recognize that public health is not merely primary health care, as established twenty-two years ago in the Alma Ata Declaration. Public health encompasses all factors that can improve the health of the community. It is usually described as disease prevention, health promotion, disease management (including cure), and rehabilitation. In my view, public health's function is to shift that equation towards the left. In other words, prevention must ultimately be the purpose for public health.
