Overview
Public health plays an indispensable role helping to safeguard the nation against an array of potential threats and concerns, as highlighted over recent years by the COVID-19 pandemic. Through intervening early and through encouraging healthier lifestyles, improving public health can alleviate pressure on the already oversubscribed healthcare services in the long term. The public sector has a responsibility to confront these challenges though educating and informing the public on health risks and setting policies to protect residents against health threats. Therefore, local and healthcare services must adopt a collaborative approach to identify and address key risks to public health.
