Humanitarian Public Health
Humanitarian public health is the field devoted to the study and improvement of physical health of all people - especially those who are largely forgotten. It is a field that relies upon several associated disciplines for its effectiveness, including sociology, medicine, nursing, biostatistics and political science. International public health is in every sense a global subject. The interconnected nature of our world today means that everyone has a stake in international public health, for whatever aids or depresses the health of even the humblest, most remote people ultimately influences us all.
