COMMUNITY-BASED PRIMARY HEALTH CARE PROGRAMS

Community-based approaches—those which include full participation of community members and groups—are highly effective in addressing priority public health challenges. Leaders of large-scale community-based primary healthcare programs must consider a broad range of ethical, cultural, political and socio-economic factors for each population they serve.

The Master’s in Community-Based Primary Health Care prepares future leaders in the public, private and NGO sectors serving low- and middle-income populations worldwide. The curriculum equips students with a diverse skill set focusing on the design, analysis, implementation and evaluation of large-scale community-based primary health care programs.

WHAT CAN THIS DEGREE DO FOR YOU?

The Master’s in Community-Based Primary Health Care Programs offers a career-advancing skillset for early- to mid-level public health professionals serving low- to middle-income populations. Specialized knowledge such as learning to effectively source, gather and utilize social data, allows our graduates to make more informed public health decisions. A rigorous, yet life-balanced online curriculum explores the breadth of community-based primary care in the global setting, while preparing students to train additional front-line community health workers.
