Public Health Degree Benefits

Over the past decade, healthcare across Africa has increased substantially. As the World Health Organization has stated already in 2014, there has been an increase of vaccinations, treatment options and preventative medicine in many areas. Additionally, with a growing middle class and lower poverty rates, private healthcare is also becoming an option for more people which relieves the strain on public healthcare. Nevertheless, the increasing mobility of people and an increase of non-communicable diseases, such as cancer, heart disease, etc. create new challenges that need to be addressed on a wider scale.
