School of Population and Global Health

Protecting and improving health

Population (or public) health is the art and science of protecting and improving the health of communities, using an evidence-based approach through research, advocacy and health promotion. It plays an important role in health and wellbeing, as well as improving the social and environmental conditions and behaviours that affect us.

At The University of Western Australia, the School of Population and Global Health is a leading research, teaching and service organisation whose work influences health policies and practices. The School comprises Population and Public Health, the Western Australian Centre for Rural Health (WACRH) and The Raine Study.

With a commitment to achieving excellence in teaching and research training, our courses are flexible and industry relevant, giving students the knowledge and skills to address pressing and emerging health issues.

The School is guided by an Advisory Board that includes high profile and influential members from both government and non-government organisations and provides high level external review and advice on the relevance and direction of major teaching, research, research translation and community engagement programs for the School.

Population Health is all around us: the water we drink, the air we breathe, the food we eat, the immunisations we receive and the environment in which we live. Professor Colleen Fisher, Head of School
