PRINCIPLES OF PUBLIC HEALTH

PHE5PUH

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject you will gain insight into major transition points in the health and equity of populations globally, determinants of health, the principles of public health, and current and future challenges for public health. You are introduced to the diverse disciplines contributing to the organised effort in public health and the vital role of citizens in analysis, advocacy, action, and leadership. Public health successes and approaches to contemporary health issues are explored as well as the intervention methods we can bring together to protect and improve health, prevent and control disease and injury, and reduce health inequalities. These include governance, policy, law and regulation; surveillance and screening; public health education; public health advocacy; environmental change; and social mobilisation. Selected public health frameworks will be used to demonstrate how insights and evidence from multiple disciplines and fields can be combined to detect, describe, analyse and prioritise public health problems, and to design, implement, monitor and evaluate, and adapt responses and solutions.
