In many developing nations, public health professionals, as well as neighborhood health personnel, are supporting programmes and initiatives like polio eradication, eradication of guinea worm, trachoma management, incorporated neighborhood situation when managing, maternal and paediatric health system, and timely response and warning to public overall health crisis situations. In certain places, structures aren't functional or continue to be being designed to identify, prevent and react to the public health functions.
