Twelve Principles of Public Health

Dr. Martin Kulldorff – a co-author of the Great Barrington Declaration – offers twelve succinct principles of public health. Each, of course, is important. Yet each was, and continues to be, ignored to one degree or another by many public-health “experts,” by most people in the media, and by far too many politicians.

Here’s the first principle:

Public health is about all health outcomes, not just a single disease like Covid-19. It is important to also consider harms from public health measures.

And here’s principle number 12:

It is important for public health scientists and officials to listen to the public, who are living the public health consequences. This pandemic has proved that many non-epidemiologists understand public health better than some epidemiologists.

Do read the Dr. Kulldorff’s full list. Although chock-full of wisdom, it’s very short.
