The social determinants of health short course

 

Overview

The aim of the course is to introduce participants to the major social and economic processes that affect population health including: social class, race and ethnicity, poverty and income distribution, social networks and support, community cohesion, work and neighborhood environments. The course features empirical research linking each determinant to population health status. It will also discuss the role of social policies in addressing health inequalities. Particular emphasis is given to the Australian context, including empirical evidence from Australian studies.

The course is aimed at policy-makers, health service providers, academics and post-graduate students who have an interest in social determinants of population health.

Application form due Friday 12 April 2013.
