In brief: Similar

Population health is often used by health plans to refer to providing services to the entire spectrum of members -- all ages and health conditions, from the perfectly healthy to those with multiple chronic conditions.
Public health usually refers to services provided by government agencies for the entire population or specific segments of the population, such as water treatment or immunizations.
