International Public Health emphasises a modern approach to public health in low- and middle-income countries. It aims to ensure students can work productively in public health in an international context, particularly in developing countries, through an understanding of the distribution and determinants of disease and health and the social and cultural contexts in which disease and health are embedded. Students will also learn about health systems and policies and interventions for effective disease prevention and control.
The course focuses on themes such as: causes of ill-health and premature mortality; determinants of health and quality of life; infectious diseases and under-nutrition; and health in rural and urban contexts and in ethnically diverse populations. It also covers infrastructure development for disease control and health promotion, and relevant aspects of program design, implementation and evaluation.
