Population Health

What is population health?

We see population health as a broad concept encompassing not only the elimination of diseases and injuries, but also the intersecting and overlapping factors that influence health.

These influencing factors include the environment, education, mobility, policy and governance, poverty, racism, infrastructure, access to technology, urban planning and many more.

Together, these issues revolve around three major pillars — human health, environmental resilience and social and economic equity — that affect the lives of billions of people around the world.
