By spreading proven public health measures, we can save millions of lives every year.
WHY PUBLIC HEALTH
Some of the world’s most common causes of death are preventable. Tobacco use, road crashes, drowning, and obesity claim millions of lives each year. On these and other major public health challenges, we increasingly know what measures work to save lives and prevent illnesses – and the right resources go a long way in helping those measures spread. By helping local and national governments identify and apply effective strategies, we are making major progress.
Data-driven solutions can help to save lives from preventable causes.
With better research and interventions, we can prevent deaths and injuries from preventable public health risks.
