An understanding of how social, cultural and economic factors can influence the health of individuals and communities is central to public health practice. Applying this knowledge in a human services role allows graduates to develop and deliver support programs that recognise a client’s individual circumstances and underlying barriers to improved health. You may work for government health and human services departments, non-government organisations, community and advocacy groups, and not-for-profit organisations.
