Epidemiology is the cornerstone of Public Health and can be viewed as the scientific study of health and disease in populations. Key roles include the establishment of disease registers to assess the burden of specific diseases and their temporal trends in populations: identifying determinants of disease and outcome; organising and interpreting studies to implement prevention measures in populations, once preventable causes have been identified.
