Public Health is often overlooked in the field of medicine and healthcare but becomes essential in times of crisis, such as the Covid pandemic. This was emphasized during a recent meeting called ‘Take care of your health’, where it was highlighted that preventative measures and resources are necessary to protect the health of all citizens. Elena Andradas, general director of Public Health of the Community of Madrid, further stressed the importance of investing in prevention programs and maintaining updated information systems. She also underscored the need for training at all levels, particularly for health professionals.
Collaboration between different entities and private companies is vital in the field of Public Health. Juan Carlos Gil, general director of Moderna for Spain and Portugal, emphasized the importance of investment in production and distribution of vaccines to guarantee access for patients in Europe. As part of these efforts, Moderna has made significant investments in Spain and plans to continue doing so. Additionally, collaboration with scientific societies and universities is crucial for the advancement of Public Health initiatives.
