Epidemiology and Public Health

The word epidemiology comes from the Greek word Epi, meaning "on or upon," demos, meaning "people," and logos, meaning "the study of”. Epidemiology is: a) a quantitative discipline built on a working knowledge of probability, statistics, and sound research methods; b) a method of causal reasoning based on developing and testing hypotheses pertaining to occurrence and prevention of morbidity and mortality; and c) a tool for public health action to promote and protect the public's health.

It is the key quantitative discipline that underpins public health, which is often defined as the organised efforts of society to prevent disease and to promote health. Public Health is a blend of sciences, skills and convictions that is focused on the preservation and improvement of the health of all people through preventive (rather than curative) measures. In descriptive epidemiology, scientists make use of available data to identify health problems. In analytical epidemiology, scientists assess hypotheses about the association of risk factors with these problems. Epidemiology serves as the quantitative foundation for public health interventions and is a critical science for evidence-based medicine. The focus of the Division of Epidemiology, in the Department of Population Health, is to gain new understanding of the inter-relationship of genetic and environmental factors impacting on human health, providing the scientific basis for translation of this knowledge to public health action.
