    The Two Faces of Public Health

    Science and action are the two faces of public health: each is strengthened and reinforced by the other. Facts and science can motivate and support action; effective action requires facts and the need to act motivates our search for facts.

    Today, at the end of 2016, at a time of fake news and the frequent decoupling of political discourse from truth and facts, we need to redouble our commitment to the two faces of public health: yes to action and activism, and yes also to the facts than describe reality, speak truth, and thus empower and sustain action.  

    May the year 2017 be one of renewed commitment to what we in public health, through action and facts, can do to make our societies healthier and more fulfilling for all.
