Masterprogram i folkhälsovetenskap, jämlik hälsa

This Master's programme in public health science has a specific focus on Health equality, e.g. on methods for studying causes and dynamics of health inequalities as well as models for leveling out potential inequities. The purpose of the programme is to prepare students for successful participation in strategic and practical public health work within regional, national and/or international institutions as well as for further studies at postgraduate level.

Public health science is a multidisciplinary field that places questions about health and disease in a social context. Its breadth implies that there is a need for a deeper understanding of specific themes, in this case the mechanisms behind inequality and inequity in health. Public health science focuses on the importance of society's organization and other structural factors (political, economic and cultural) for the health status of populations, including studies of the social determinants of health, e.g. income and educational level, discrimination, access to healthcare and so forth. Based on this, the discipline increasingly deals with questions about whether the distribution of health within a population is equal and fair, that is, if variations in the health of different groups can be referred to structural factors and therefore are possible to change. Included in the field is also formulation of policy, interventions and evaluations that addresses identified health problems and gaps.

Work areas
Work opportunities for Public health professionals mirror contemporary public health challenges. Positions will therefore be found in organizations engaged in promoting population health and preventing disease, such as local and regional public health departments and authorities, ministries of health and social affairs, UN bodies and non-governmental organizations. Public health professionals perform a wide range of tasks including surveillance and analyses of population health data, design of health promotion policy and interventions addressing social determinants and health equity, advocacy communication and social mobilization for health. Students completing the programme are also well prepared for PhD studies within the area of Public health science.
