Description

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. Building on knowledge from previous studies of health promotion, epidemiology, primary health care and health systems, students develop an understanding of the project cycle, facilitation, management and stakeholder partnerships, and other approaches that can be used in health-related projects.

Students utilise these approaches and tools used in health project development and planning to prepare a development proposal for a health promotion or health service delivery project based on a specific scenario. Students also consider key dilemmas related to health project planning, including top-down vs. bottom-up approaches, ethics, sustainability, as well as social equity and inclusivity.
