The importance of public health must be taught right from one’s school days itself, for what is inculcated in one's formative years is what sets the tone for his/her later stages in life. Further, an individual contribution is vital in this aspect because what is practiced by every individuals/family is what migrates to a bigger social canvas on extrapolation. If one could set this basics right, the public and hence the society will automatically benefit from it enormously. Then only we could proclaim that we have a commendable public health infrastructure in place, and fearlessly dream of a society free from illnesses and diseases.
So, the writing on the wall is quite clear; for nurturing good public health, we all need to be more socially responsible citizens, who care both for oneself and his/her family and the society at large, in actively educating the common man and spreading awareness amongst the public, so that there could exist an encouraging health climate in the county or world where we live in. After all, if the public did not build public health, then who else will?
