Demographic transition in low and middle income countries has led to changes in the health needs of populations which now face the double burden of disease with both infectious and non-communicable disease co-existing as public health problems. These countries are also particularly vulnerable to the effects of disasters, both natural and man-made. This program has been developed in response to the changing global context in public health and the need for health professionals with the capabilities to respond to these changes. By bringing together nutrition and active living and focusing on working with diverse communities the course is both unique and innovative. The program equips graduates with the specialist knowledge and skills to pursue a career in public health practice either in Australia or globally in emergencies or development. Students can elect to specialise in one of the two streams offered at the university, either global public health nutrition or public health and active living.
