Introduction to Public Health
Public Health is the discipline that seeks to understand patterns and causes of disease within populations and brings evidence-based interventions to address those diseases of significance within populations. It requires an understanding of the current Burden of Disease in Australia, the Region and Globally. In order to effectively respond to the challenge of this Burden of Disease students will need to understand the biological, social and environmental courses of these patterns of disease; further an understanding of economic and political processes in determining a response to the Burden of Disease.
An understanding of how health systems and organisations are structured and function to respond to this Burden of Disease in Australia, the Region and Globally is central to understanding how Population Health Responses are mounted.
