Course Introduction

The broad research areas within the Faculty of Epidemiology and Population Health are identification of the determinants of ill health and evaluation of interventions to improve global health and reduce the burden of disease. Our aim is to conduct research which is methodologically innovative and which provides reliable information for evidence'based decision making in public health. There is a strong emphasis on the translation of findings into programme action and health policy. The Faculty is multidisciplinary and encompasses epidemiologists, medical statisticians, medical demographers, nutritionists, social scientists and public health practitioners.
