Unit: Core
Learning outcome: A2: The healthcare sector
Assessment criteria: A2.14 The role of public health approaches and how this benefits regional and national population health through prevention and improvement initiatives

  • Public health approaches aim to promote the health of populations as a whole
  • Over the longer term, this can lead to healthier populations, therefore putting less strain on the healthcare system
  • This approach focuses on prevention rather than cure (e.g. educating the public about healthy eating, encouraging people to walk where they ran rather than drive, raising public awareness about the risks of unhealthy activities etc.)
  • Examples of public health organisations include the World Health Organisation (WHO) at the international level and the Office for Health Improvement and Disparities at the national (UK) level
