By strengthening the public health-related knowledge base of a community, the overall effectiveness of the healthcare system is in turn, strengthened as well. When more tools are made available to those that deliver the supportive healthcare to a community, outcomes improve, and the general public’s trust in the system is fostered. In this way, the public’s willingness to voluntarily participate in a community’s healthcare system improves, making the provider-participant relationship stronger, and more efficient.
