AbstractSince the advent of public health (MPH) in the 17th century, its success has depended on close engagement with society. In the field of health, bioethics professionally bridges the gap between institutional and public policy, creating a link between achievements, responsibilities, and what needs to be done when the area of responsibility prevails as the guiding principle of ethics. In this context, since public health and bioethics incorporate social and subjective determinants in their analysis, it is recommended that public health action be undertaken using an expanded and integrated view of the relationship between human and health. The essence of public health ethics concerns the moral rationale for policies, programs, and laws that protect and promote public health. Since public health includes broad social programs and public policies, issues related to justifying paternalistic interventions, equitable distribution of resources, and responsibility for health. Certain patient care measures (such as vaccinations) also contribute to public health, and difficult ethical questions can and do arise among practitioners.
