About this course

The Graduate Certificate in Public Health aims to provide students with the knowledge and skills to incorporate the principles of public health/primary health care into specific fields of practice in order to reduce inequalities in health care access and health outcomes. In Australia, these principles include: maximising consumer and community participation to enable individuals and communities to be better informed and to be involved in health care decisions encouraging partnerships between health and non-health sectors to ensure full use of resources fostering self-management and self-reliance to increase knowledge, skills and confidence in individuals, groups and communities promoting health and disease prevention to attain and sustain good health and well-being. The Master of Public Health aims to provide students with the knowledge and skills to incorporate into their own workplaces the public health principles, values and practices that reduce inequities in health care access and health outcomes and improve population health status.
