The field of public health has a distinctly uncoordinated terminology. The reason for this is that terms are taken over from different other scientific fields or are created according to historical needs and circumstances in different countries. A local jargon is frequently used. The task of this module is to review a group of terms on the enclosed list which will be often used during the public health course. It is expected from students to give short description of definition of previously unknown terms and list of terms which students find ambiguous.
