Public health is everybody’s business. Whether or not you are in professional practice, your viewpoint is a central aspect of this Public Health - Health Promotion And Health Security module at The Open University UK.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

 It will inform and empower you to challenge your existing assumptions around current policies and interventions and encourage you to move your everyday actions and practice forward. Public health: health promotion and health security considers both communicable and non-communicable diseases (NCDs), and how the demography and epidemiology of both types of disease have uncovered health inequality and inequity in society.

The Public Health - Health Promotion And Health Security module at The Open University UK is mapped against the current United Kingdom Public Health Register (UKHPR) requirements and offers you insights into how social determinants impact the health and wellbeing of diverse social groups. It’s ideal if you’re interested in developing a career in public health or want to discover ways of sustainably promoting greater health and wellbeing while strengthening integrated public health services and reducing inequalities.
