96701 Global Public Health

6cp; 3 x 8hr (full-day) workshops, 3hpw online activities and distributed learning


This subject provides a critical understanding of the impact of economic, political, and environmental factors on health and wellbeing on a global scale. Students develop an appreciation of health systems in different societies and the roles of different organisations and institutions that affect global health policy. Case studies from high-, low- and middle-income countries are used to illustrate the challenges faced on a national, regional and global scale. Students identify and examine evidence that can be used to inform and evaluate national and international efforts to strengthen health systems and to provide universal coverage, particularly to vulnerable populations across multiple settings.
