Public health writing is unique. In no other field do authors often deal with a complex range of factors that include age, gender, education, economics, race, sex, culture, medicine, genetics, individual behavior, family, community, and social justice.
Furthermore, one of the conditions necessary for improving public health is clear communication among a wide array of stakeholders, including researchers, practitioners, health providers, administrators, policy-makers, journalists, educators, and communities.
Clear and effective communication is therefore a key component of public health leadership.
