Summary

The MSc Global Public Health and Policy builds on models of social determinants of health and international health concepts of policy-making at local, national, and international levels.

Social determinants and the consequences for health and wellbeing of inequalities have been an essential part of the understanding of public health doctors when dealing with health issues at population level. Today, with the work of Marmot and most recently Picketty, there is a greater awareness than ever in academia, medicine, and politics of health inequalities. There are, therefore, opportunities at present for those concerned with these issues to make a contribution to addressing global health challenges.
Students can specialise in areas as diverse as trade in health, global burden of disease, evidence based policy making, pharmaceuticals and clinical trials, the anthropology of health, and ethics.
This MSc programme will be of particular interest if you are a medical and clinical practitioner, a civil servant, a public health practitioner, a social or political scientist, a lab scientist, or work for an NGO.
This MSc programme is part of a wider programme of study in global health within the Barts and London School of Medicine and Dentistry. The programmes are directed by Professor David McCoy, and a multidisciplinary team of clinical and non-clinical academics from the Centre for Primary Care and Public Health led by Professors Sandra Eldridge and Chris Griffiths.
