PBHL20005 - Global Public Health

General Information

Unit Synopsis

This unit focuses on global health issues from a social-ecological public health perspective. You will explore the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as they relate to global public health and examine a range of public health issues including communicable disease, climate change, gender equity and food security. Key concepts covered in this unit include inequality, social justice, and human rights across a range of populations, regions, and contexts. Multi-sectoral partnerships at a local, national and international level will be analysed, in addition to a specific focus on the global engagement of stakeholders to support the implementation of the SDGs. You will have the opportunity to develop innovative public health interventions to address specific targets relating to the SDGs in a particular region or context using the theory of salutogenesis. A project proposal and grant application relating to one of the SDGs will be developed to address a specific public health challenge in a region or context of your choice.
