Community Health

The term community health has been replaced by social medicine, preventive medicine and public health. A EURO symposium in 1966 defined community health as “that which includes all the personal health and environmental services in any human community, irrespective of whether such services were public or private ones”. Sometimes community health is used synonymously for environmental health, community health care.
