Public Health in Marginalised Populations - HSYP819

Public Health is intrinsically related to social justice and alleviating the outcomes associated with negative health determinants, including marginalisation. In line with this philosophy, you will explore the nature of marginalisation and its impacts on the health of individuals and populations. We will investigate the role of policy in improving health and in some cases, creating further disadvantage in at risk populations. We will also investigate the unique nature of undertaking research with marginalised populations, particularly the necessity to involve relevant stakeholders in all stages of the research endeavour so as to promote social justice and equity for marginalised populations.
