Course programme

Panjab University is running a Master Program in Public Health since the year 2007 under CEAST to cater to the emerging needs of the country to produce trained manpower for handling public health issues.

Public Health is emerging as one of the most significant areas in the present context of viewing health of the citizen being the important resource and asset of a nation. Major advances in improvement of health over the next decade will be through the development and application of population based preventive programmes. Health service delivery systems are undergoing rapid changes. With issues such as AIDS, population explosion, natural and man-made disasters, pandemics like SARS, bird flu etc. challenging public healthcare, it has become very urgent to prepare a task force of experts in dealing with the domain of public health in the world in general and India in particular. In our country, where lack of basic awareness about health care can lead to making a large section of our human resource as a liability instead of an asset, the need for specialized programmes in Public Health cannot be more emphasized.
