Public Health Systems and Community Health  
 

Public Health Systems are made up of a complex network of people, systems and organizations working in the public (local, state and national level) and private arenas. It broadly covers three core areas: (a) Basic Infrastructure (consisting of workforce capacity and competency; information and data systems; and organizational and systems capacity); (b) Essential Capabilities consisting of surveillance, laboratory practice and epidemic investigation; and (c) Public Health Response. Community Health on the other hand is a discipline within public health and concerns itself with the study and betterment of the health characteristics of biological communities. While the term community can be broadly defined, community health tends to focus on geographic areas rather than people with shared characteristics.
