This subject provides a critical introduction to the management and evaluation process in health projects and programs. Students learn and apply management skills and tools used in the planning, implementation and evaluation of projects and programs designed to deliver health benefits in a variety of community and public health settings.
Students develop an understanding of the project cycle, management and stakeholder roles, and intervention approaches in health-related projects. Students utilise many of the approaches and tools used in health project development and planning when preparing a development proposal based on a specific scenario. Students also consider the importance of key aspects of health project planning, including top-down vs. bottom-up approaches, ethics, sustainability, as well as social equity and inclusivity.
