Public health aims to address social and environmental factors that lead to illness or poor health to prevent disease, prolong life and improve the health and wellbeing of populations and communities. Along with addressing determinants of poor health, students will cultivate skills to promote health and wellbeing in healthy populations to maintain health over the lifespan. A Public Health Practitioner uses diverse approaches including policy development, data analysis and reporting, media and advocacy, public events and community-based education and interventions to address health concerns and promote health and wellbeing within communities.  This field will also have a focus on equity in access to health programs and services for priority population groups such as the homeless, Aboriginal people and migrants. Students will benefit from a curriculum aligned to the Australian Public Health Competency Framework and the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Curriculum Framework.
