Population health as defined by Nash, Reifsnyder, Fabius & Pracilio (2011) is the “distribution of health outcomes within a population, the health determinants that influence distribution, and the policies and interventions that impact the determinants” (p. xxxv). Studying a health problem that affects the population would always lead to a better healthcare delivery system, promoting health services that are accessible, affordable, available, and acceptable.
