DrPH vs PhD



I have a basic question that I have asked of most faculty members/staff  where I work, and have gotten a different answer every single time. I want to know a few key things regarding a DrPH in epidemiology when compared to a PhD in epidemiology.

Is a DrPH really viewed as less prestigious when compared to a PhD?

Can someone with a DrPH conduct focused research (ie cancer, chronic, infectious diseases)/is a PhD preferred for this?

Do graduates with a DrPH usually obtain jobs with "Hard Funding" (guaranteed funding not dependent on grant money)?

What are the pros and cons of a DrPH versus a PhD in your opinion.
