PHM593 Tropical Child and Adolescent Health

This unit explores what is meant by tropical child health, the key determinants of child health in tropical regions and the public health approaches to maintaining and improving child health in tropical regions. It focuses primarily on children with some reference to youth <24 years of age. The unit will explore health issues particular to tropical countries, including both advantaged and disadvantaged populations. The unit is broadly structured around defining tropical health and the particular effects that living in the tropics has on child health and development. It will explore health determinants, particularly environmental factors, the key diseases and health priorities, and the health promotion/prevention and disease control frameworks that are required to maintain and improve the health of children in tropical countries.
