The Postgraduate Diploma in Public Health emphasises the role of social, economic, cultural, educational, environmental and other societal factors in the production and maintenance of individual and community wellbeing.
You build your understanding of key elements of public health, with an emphasis on community health and development. You examine community and population perspectives on health and disease, and health systems responses. You learn to interpret the patterns of health and disease in populations, and become familiar with behaviours that contribute to health and disease in the community.
The programme is committed to principles of equity, social justice, empowerment and community participation and ownership.
