Looking into different public health careers? Non-profit organizations play a critical role in public health by providing health services that government agencies and private businesses fail to address. The non-profit sector provides solutions for health issues related to infectious diseases, public safety, environmental hazards and disparities in health care that threaten the well-being of communities around the world. Non-profits also serve groups of people with specific health care needs, including mothers and children, the elderly and those with behavioral health problems, such as alcoholism and drug addiction.
