As per World Health Organization “Public health refers to all organized measures (whether public or private) to prevent disease, promote health, and prolong life among the population as a whole. Its activities aim to provide conditions in which people can be healthy and focus on entire populations, not on individual patients or diseases.”  All professionals who are currently involved in or are aspiring for a career in developing, improving and innovating programmes, services and policies focused at promoting the health of the population, should have thorough knowledge of the public health discipline. Master of Public Health (MPH) is such a programme, designed specifically for providing necessary knowledge and skills for this very purpose.
