MSc International Public Health

An improvement in population health is increasingly recognised internationally as a key element of economic and social development in low and middle income countries. The public health approach is critical to improving population health and developing mechanisms to measure and monitor health and disease status. There is also a public health role to advocate for a strategic response to the burden of ill health and disease in low resource settings. The MSc International Public Health programme offers a broad based understanding of health and particularly the social and environmental determinants of health.

This route in particular is informed by key international strategies including the Millennium Development Goals (UN 2000), Health for All (WHO 1978; 2000) and the Social Determinants of Health (WHO 2011).

Past Students

“LJMU has a warm reception towards international students. This is home away from home.  For me, the North West of England has been the perfect place to study Public Health. LJMU is quite exceptional in its public health research so for me, there was no better place to study.”

Babatunji Adeogun, MSc International Public Health

“International Public Health is a course that opens one’s eyes to other determinants of health, and the existing inequalities that exist between countries. The Faculty is very supportive towards International Students and always willing to help. My experience at LJMU has been wonderful, especially the lecturer/student relationship.”
