In contrast to healthcare, which often focuses on the individual, public health tends to work at a bigger scale – at a population level. It aims to protect and improve the public’s health and wellbeing and reduce inequalities in health.

This booklet sets out the huge range of roles available in public health, whether or not you work directly with members of the public. If you work in public health, you will contribute to giving people the best chance to live long and healthy lives.
