Public Health is important due to aiding and prolonging life. Through the prevention of health issues, individuals can spend more of their years in good health.

   

Public Health helps detect health issues as early as possible and responds appropriately to avoid the development of disease.

   

It is diverse and takes into account the health of the whole population, rather than focusing on health at an individual level.

What causes a lack of awareness?

   

Lack of awareness is due to the absence, inaccessibility or inaccuracy of information, which is sometimes made harder by cultural taboos, myths and fear, which can stop people from taking preventative action or seeing doctors. For example, one out of four people in Africa believes that cancer has no cure, and only 36% see cancer as a major health issue. As a result of lack of awareness, people often come to healthcare facilities when their disease has worsened or reached a late stage, resulting in lower chance of effective treatment. Around 70% of cancer patients in Indonesia see physicians at a late stage.
