DIPLOMA IN PUBLIC HEALTH

Africa Institute for Project Management Studies (AIPMS) is pleased to announce a Diploma in Public Health .The Course is offered through Distance Learning. The course starts at the beginning of every month.
Course Overview
Public Health is the scientific discipline of safeguarding and enhancing the well being of general public by means of education, promotion of healthy ways of life, and extensive study of diseases and injury prevention. Public health experts review the impact on health of genetics, individual choice and the surroundings so as to create plans that safeguard the health of your family and local community.
In general, public health is concerned with safeguarding the overall health of whole populations. These populations can vary in size from a small neighborhood, to as big as an entire nation.
The public health professionals’ take up community programs to make people conscious of threats such as chemical poisoning and to address persistent problems afflicting the society. In an age of dwindling healthcare expenses, administrators’ are anticipated to conclude projects sooner and with less ground staff than ever before. This has strained many public administrators to implement their creative skills in scheming novel ways to lever the concerns they encounter. In simple terms, public health administration is the constant monitoring of health issues of public and educating them accordingly in ways that they can understand.
