ABSTRACT
It is essential to understand from the outset that Health is not Sickness, nor is it simply the absence of sickness. Public Health is not simply about the health situation in individuals, but essentially about the Health of Populations. Finally, it has to be understood that humans cannot live forever, and that while the aim is to live longer and longer, it is vitally important that this increased life expectancy is not simply lived in sickness, but is lived as healthy life expectancy and with a good quality of life.
