Learn about the history of global public health. You’ll begin by learning about the cultural, economic, environmental, governmental and social influences involved in local and international healthcare.
Through analysis of historic and existing global health issues, you’ll learn to identify root causes and effective solutions. You’ll explore strategies for health education, health system management, patient care and engagement, preventive health and treatment of infectious and non-transferable diseases.
Following this, you’ll gain an understanding of finance in health, exploring the roles and relationships of stakeholders in politics and the economy. Learn the components of universal health coverage (UHC) including accessibility, affordability and quality. You’ll also discuss the objectives and targets of United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (UN SDG) 3: Health and Well-Being.
You’ll then analyse different approaches to maternal health, mental health, nutrition and preventative health. Pull from resources provided by recognised public health organisations, such as the World Health Organization (WHO).
After successfully completing this course, you’ll have the foundational knowledge to consider contributing towards global public health initiatives.
