Individual Health & Public Health


Individual health and public health are inseparable. In order to promote individual health, physicians must also promote public health by thinking globally and functioning as medical sociologists, who value human rights, quality of life, social justice, international relations, and world peace. The path to world peace begins with the physician's commitment to individual health and public health. Peace and health are inseparable.
