Why study Global Public Health with Queen Mary Online?

With social, political, economic and ecological factors all having a direct impact on public health, it’s imperative for health professionals to see the global picture of how these determinants are affecting people’s health in their daily lives, and to learn from their international counterparts.

Today, there’s a greater awareness than ever among academia, governments and the general public alike regarding unfair and avoidable health inequalities, and the failure of health systems in reducing health disparities.

To be able to successfully address global public health issues, we need to continue to raise awareness of these issues among a wide range of people in society. This starts with providing these people with the opportunity to learn about and thoroughly understand these issues.

You can choose to study for the postgraduate certificate or diploma, or continue on to the MSc.


An introduction to various conceptual and theoretical understandings of ?health systems? within a social, economic, historical and global context.
