  • Description:
    Public health can improve the lives of individuals with Tourette Syndrome (TS) and their families, and can help create communities and institutions that support the potential for full, productive living for those affected by TS. Public health emphasizes the prevention of disease and disability, and improves the health and well-being of populations rather than individuals. The 10 Essential Services approach is one framework that provides a foundation for any public health activity. This approach emphasizes three areas: assessment (monitor, diagnose and investigate), policy development (inform and educate people, mobilize partnerships, develop policies) and assurance (link people to needed services, assure a competent workforce, evaluate health services) (1). The purpose of this document is to raise awareness of TS as a public health issue, highlight gaps in knowledge and resources that can be addressed by public health, and begin the process of developing public health priorities for TS.
