This chapter discusses the differences between individual and population health priorities. It describes the Population Health Evidence Cycle (Ask the question, Collect the evidence, and Understand and use the evidence) as an organizing structure for how to involve the public in priority setting. A new definition of public health is advocated: “Use of theory, experience, and evidence derived through the population sciences to improve the health of the population in a way that best meets the implicit and explicit needs of the community (the public)”.

Keywords:   Population Health Evidence Cycle, public health, health policy, priority setting
