An improvement in population health is increasingly recognised internationally as a key element of economic and social development and nowhere more urgently than in low and middle income countries. The focus of this programme is to develop the public health approach relevant to these countries, often referred to as low resource settings.

Many of our students come from countries with the so-called double burden of disease. Whilst still fighting infectious diseases, they are also now increasingly faced with a growth in non-communicable diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure and strokes.
