PUBLIC HEALTH IN INDIA : ISSUES & CHALLENGES
India is passing through demographic and environmental transition which is adding to burden of diseases. There is triple burden of diseases, viz. communicable, non-communicable and emerging infectious diseases.
This high burden of disease, disability and death can only be addressed through an effective public health system.
However, the growth of public health in India has been very slow due to low public expenditure on health, very few public health institutes in India and inadequate national standards for public health education.
Public health is an interdisciplinary field that brings together expertise from a range of disciplines including medicine, social sciences, management, engineering, information technology, etc.
The public health sector in India is in critical need of qualified public health specialists and the MPH program aims to bridge this gap.
In order to strengthen the public health functional capacity of state and our country, Parul Univeristy has commenced 2 yrs full time programmes viz Masters in Public Health & Masters in Health Administration.
The courses aim to introduce the participants to the Indian health system including the current national health programmes and policies.
They aim to teach essential management skills required to be a good public health manager.
Both the courses are specially designed to address the increasing demand of quality care through appropriately skilled and trained health care professionals having managerial skills in panning and addressing issues both at health facility and in public health domain.
