From Measles to Maternal Health: Strengthening Partnerships Between Healthcare and Public Health


The mission of healthcare is to meet the needs of individual patients while public health is driven by a commitment to the health of broad populations. For too long, the two fields have operated largely in parallel, with only weak ties to connect them. Although the COVID-19 pandemic illustrated the urgency of building bridges, we are now at risk of pandemic amnesia. It is time to meet the country’s most pressing health challenges—childhood infections, influenza, obesity, reproductive health, and the opioid epidemic, to name just a few—with a well-coordinated approach that draws on the strengths of both healthcare and public health. Breaking down silos can amplify a more efficient and equitable response that offers greater benefits for all. (Presented by the Common Health Coalition)
