Public Health and Health Promotion

Are you looking to gain your first qualification or build on previous study?

If you are interested in working with organisations that enable individuals, groups and whole communities to reach their health potential, then this New Zealand Certificate in Public Health and Health Promotion (Level 5) will provide a suitable career pathway.

A career in public health focuses on preventing disease and promoting the health of populations through the organised efforts of society. This differentiates it from the practice of personal healthcare, as it involves collective action across sectors and disciplines, with a focus on populations and communities. It has a strong focus on health equity, and reducing ethnic and socioeconomic inequalities in health.

There is demand for individuals qualified in this area so find out more about how we can help you work in this rewarding area of health.
