Overview

Who should do this specialisation?

The demographic ageing of populations worldwide has significant implications for individuals and society. Comprehensive public health responses are urgently needed to meet the challenges of this demographic transition. This specialisation will unite the broader competencies gained by students in the Master of Public Health program with a detailed knowledge of the specific contemporary public health issues facing ageing populations. Students will be equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary to promote healthy ageing, to better align health and long term care systems to the needs of older people, and to create enabling environments which optimise functional ability. This stream is relevant to students with an interest in 'ageing and health', particularly for those students aiming to work in policy, planning or aged care services. This stream maintains an international focus and is relevant to students from high, middle and low income countries.
