To prepare for this Discussion, bring to mind the mission and vision statements you reviewed last week as well as the values you have seen exemplified in the public health field. What do you consider the main values of public health? Do you see areas of alignment between the explicit or implicit values of public health organizations and the values expressed by you and your classmate? Do you see any conflicts among them?
This is the Mission and vision statements on last week:
Mission and Vision of Public Health
Most of the vision and mission statements I read have some similarities. The visions and mission provide the desired expectation of the organization. Most of them focus on providing quality healthcare through various interventions (Collins & Porras, 1996). They also provide insights on the prevention strategies the organization have embraced to improve patient heath outcome. They also highlight on the commitment of the staffs to ensure that quality healthcare is provided. In general, the vision and mission focus on the aims, goals and objectives of the health facilities.
