Harvard Public Health Review

Summer 2002

The overarching mission of the Harvard School of Public Health

is to advance the public's health through learning, discovery, and communication.

Our objectives are to provide the highest level of education of

public health scientists, practitioners, and leaders; to foster new discoveries

leading to the improved health of the people of this country and all nations;

to strengthen health capacities and services for communities;

and to inform policy debate, disseminate health information, and increase awareness of

public health as a public good and fundamental right.
