About this course

There are a number of public health challenges facing our society and all societies today, including:

  • increasing inequalities
  • climate change
  • displacement of populations

The Global Public Health programme from Newcastle University addresses these issues and others, and encourages you to consider the roles of and interactions between governments, international organisations, and multinational corporations in addressing these challenges.

The United Nations and the World Health Organization have identified ways to improve health for all, such as the UN Sustainable Development Goals. To work towards such public health targets as universal health coverage and universal access to care, it is necessary to have an understanding of complex health interventions in their social, political, and economic contexts.

The MSc in Global Public Health is based in the Institute of Health & Society in Newcastle University’s medical school, the Faculty of Medical Sciences. The Institute, headed by Prof Allyson Pollock, is one of the UK’s leading public health departments, its diverse staff tackling global and public health issues from a large range of disciplines and perspectives.

This global health masters course grows out of the Institute’s determination to undertake research and teaching to:

  • reduce health inequalities
  • address social injustice
  • improve population health locally, nationally, and internationally
