What will I learn?

The Graduate Diploma in Global Health provides a human ecology perspective of health and disease, and expertise in relevant investigative methods. It emphasises the development of infrastructure for policy development, monitoring and surveillance, research and evaluation, workforce development, and program delivery that directs and supports public health action to promote, protect and maintain the health of populations.

The program provides the basic professional education and training for graduates to work internationally in health departments, with government and non-government organisations, and with international and bi-lateral aid agencies. You will gain an understanding of evidence-based, culturally appropriate and cost-effective approaches to disease control, health promotion and health services development based on real-life public health interventions.
