Population health is a complex field, involving dynamic interactions between cells, societies, and everything in between. However, few population health scientists or policymakers understand the precepts of complexity or systems science, let alone how to apply them to their work. Conversely, not too many systems scientists understand the applications of their work to population health. The purpose of this book is to bridge the gap between systems and population health sciences. This introduction sets the stage for the rest of the book and in doing so provides a clear, concise overview of the study of population health in the 21st century.
