Public health services play a vital role in protecting the population’s health. As more attention is paid to expanding the capacity of the public health system to identify emerging diseases, develop effective prevention and health promotion strategies, provide basic preventative health care services, and focus on emergency preparedness, it is important to understand how federal funding for public health services is allocated and applied.
