PUBLIC HEALTH IN THE 21st CENTURY
The mission of public health has its roots in the mid-nineteenth century, when physicians, housing reformers, advocates for the poor, and scientists trained in new techniques of chemistry and civil engineering came together to fight problems growing out of urbanization, industrialization, and large-scale immigration.
While todays 21st Century public health organizations reaffirm those 19th beginnings, fostering health across a community requires more than healthcare; it requires engagement with all of the community determinants of health.
WHY: The anthrax incidents following the 9/11 terrorist attacks put the spotlight on the nation’s public health agencies to evolve into organizations capable of planning for, responding to and recovering from today's emerging threat environment. Our preparedness goals are designed to directly measure how quickly we prevent, detect, investigate, and control public health emergencies resulting from natural disasters, terrorism, infectious disease, and occupational and environmental threats. We will talk preparedness activities in New Mexico and specifically to the programs taking place in the greater Albuquerque Metro area.
