Overview

The Global Health Care (International Health Care) specialisation provides health professionals the opportunity to advance their knowledge of the political contexts of health care, global health issues and sustainable development. 

The course of study explores the principles of policy formation and implementation, sustainable health care systems and their impact on population health.

Students will examine contemporary, evidence based international health care strategies with a focus on primary health care in resource poor environments. 

The specialisation provides a supportive but self-directed learning environment in which students will be encouraged to explore, question, discuss and debate policy, processes and practices with their lecturers and peers. 

Students will demonstrate the practical application of key concepts through the critical analysis of health policies, recommendations for evidence based reforms and development of program proposals relevant to their professional contexts.

Through engagement with topic activities designed to encourage diversity in learning, students will develop the knowledge, skills and capacity necessary to be agents of change to influence policy development and implementation, promote sustainable development and achieve improved population health outcomes.
