Community health practice provides the organizational structure, health care resources, and interdisciplinary collaboration to promote healthy people and communities.

Community health providers focus on individuals, families, populations, and the community using public health science.

Community health practice involves the identification of needs, and improvement of health, for people in communities.

Community health principles promote the positive connections between populations, their environment, and health of the community.
