This chapter describes strategies for public health intervention and structures that support them. It uses examples of strategies in different parts of the world and at different levels—global, national, local, and individual—to illustrate various strategic approaches. The key elements of strategy are those of vision, mission, values, aims, plans, and their implementation, monitoring, and evaluation. The examples chosen provide descriptions of how these are articulated and also how interventions are made towards their achievement of better public health. Key structures for interventions are illustrated using the acronym PEOPLE (Partnership, Environment, Outcome- focused, Population level, Life course, Empowerment). The importance of the way health services are structured, the public health workforce, and underpinning research are emphasized.
