Course Information

Globally governments are prioritising strategies and policies for improving population, community and individual health. This course recognises the importance of the wider social context in which health is created; and explores innovative approaches to address the widening inequalities gap, the health needs of an ageing population, and the increased prevalence of long-term chronic conditions.

This course encompasses both prevention and promotion, and recognises the importance of social determinants of health. It will support you to develop the skills required to address existing and emerging public health challenges locally, nationally and internationally. It will also provide you with a professional qualification that will develop your understanding of this complex field. You will strengthen, enhance and improve your career prospects, and be empowered to make a valuable contribution to improving health and wellbeing.
