Menzies' public health and health research courses provide students with effective frameworks and reliable tools which enable them to comprehend and tackle complex population health and social issues in cross-cultural, local and global environments. The health research units build students' skills in research design, epidemiology, quantitative and qualitative research methodologies.

Our courses cover Indigenous, tropical, local and global public health research and practice. They address the major public health challenges in Northern and Central Australia, neighbouring and international regions. These challenges include: health inequities; economic and social determinants; changing environmental conditions; infectious and chronic diseases; development and urbanisation; and access to and acceptability of services.

As the nation’s leader in Indigenous and tropical health research, Menzies discoveries are being used to better prevent, treat and diagnose disease. Our researchers make a difference by showing how the social and physical environments in which we live and deliver health care can be improved for better health outcomes.
