International Public Health Nutrition

Format: Campus

Program Description:

Nutrition has long been recognised as a vitally important determinant of health status within both industrialised and industrialising countries, but significant changes are occurring in the profile of nutritional problems in the world today. Many countries continue to face the on-going problems of malnutrition and micronutrient deficiencies, but countries in economic transition also face the public health challenge of rising rates of diet-related chronic disease, such as obesity and coronary heart disease. Also, many industrialised countries now face problems of food insecurity among low income groups. These challenges have led to a growing international demand for trained public health nutritionists to work in a range of contexts to control and prevent these issues at the community and population level.
