Massive health problems face African populations. There is a huge need to build capacity to study the causes of and apply evidence-based solutions for these problems. However, there is a lack of affordable and accessible educational opportunities for committed health workers to build their capacity in this area.
The healthcare sector is one of the few industries where experts expect a substantial increase in the number of jobs. A Masters of Public Health degree holds the promise of job security and exciting, new employment opportunities and the opportunity to make a real difference in people’s access to good health.
To respond to this need the Foundation for Professional Development (FPD) presents a Masters of Public Health (MPH) degree that is a three-year on-line part-time qualification accredited with the South African Council of Higher Education and registered on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) with the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA). The Master’s degree is aimed at equipping health practitioners from a variety of disciplines, with key public health competencies and collaborative strategies to address and mitigate population-level risk factors contributing to the global and national burden of disease.

This will enable you to monitor and diagnose the health concerns of entire communities and promote healthy practices and behaviours to ensure that populations stay healthy.
