Preventive Medicine and Community Health

Community health and preventive medicine focus on determining how to prevent diseases. A community is a group of people who might have different characteristics but share geographical location, settings, goals, or social interest. Examples of communities include people living in the same town, members of a church, or members of a sports team. Community health is a field of public health that focuses on studying, protecting, or improving health within a community. Promoting human health and reducing health risks through disease prevention, education and other public health services are the major goals of Preventive Medicine and Community Health. It does not focus on a group of people with the same shared characteristics, like age or analysis, but on all people within a geographical location or involved in the specific activity.

Community health covers a wide range of health care interventions, including health promotion, disease prevention, and treatment. It also involves management and administration of care. Community health workers (CHWs) are often frontline health professionals with knowledge of specific characteristics and developments of the community. They are often members of the community themselves and play an important role in the functioning of community care.
