This module introduces you to health improvement, which is central to the theory and practice of ‘the new public health’.

You will have an opportunity to discover the increasingly important role of health improvement through an examination of its dominant place in recent government papers.

You will gain a better understanding of the broader determinants of health and of the social and political issues surrounding equity and healthy public policy.

A number of sessions feature inputs from nationally/internationally recognised experts in the field.
