This is a foundation course to develop your knowledge and skills in public health in Australian and global contexts. Public health is multidisciplinary and focusses on creating health equity within and between populations and communities by promoting and protecting health and preventing disease. You will explore health inequities and the range of individual and environmental determinants that influence the health and wellbeing of populations in Australian and global contexts. You will apply these concepts to investigate complex public health priorities from a holistic, ecological, salutogenic and social justice perspective.
