Course content

Public Health is a growing concern with issues such as obesity and other complex conditions requiring a need for education and specialist training across the health sector.

The MPH Global Public Health offers a foundation in public health training and exposure to global health analysis, policies, systems and practices.

We have designed this course for health professionals looking to develop a career in public health and epidemiology.

You will focus on global public health issues guided by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), set by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015:

  • Reproductive, maternal, new-born and child health
  • Infectious diseases
  • Noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) and mental health
  • Injuries and violence
  • Universal health coverage (UHC) and health systems
  • Environmental risks
  • Health risks and disease outbreaks

You will develop an in-depth understanding of the health challenges facing populations and nations in an increasingly globalised world. We aim to equip you with skills for planning, managing and evaluating health services for disease prevention, health protection and health promotion.

Graduates from this MPH should develop a workforce with strong management, leadership and critical thinking skills.
