Public health encompasses a vast array of research topics, locations, and populations. Explore the variety of resources Population Health Exchange offers. And check back often—we’re constantly adding to it.

Advocacy

A key component of change is effective and informative advocacy—even the smallest event can be used to reach policy goals.

Communication

Public health interventions don’t just happen. Understanding how to effectively translate your research to populations that need it most is paramount to the strategy.

Data Visualization

With the explosion of data available at one’s fingertips, there is a growing need to transform raw data into meaningful information that can be used by decision makers.

Environmental Health

Our environment is intrinsic to our health, with environmental exposures among the leading contributors to health problems. And while people are affected regardless of income and geography, environmental health risks especially threaten the most vulnerable among us.

Epidemiology

How do social factors, the environment, and demographics affect a person's likelihood of developing a disease? Epidemiology is key in generating solutions to battle the world’s public health challenges, including answering these questions and creating interventions for preventative healthcare.

Funding

Passion for your work is essential, but understanding how to fundraise, budget, and make decisions based on financial information is just as important in realizing your goals.

Health Equity

Everyone should have an equal opportunity to attain their highest level of health. Understanding and utilizing the Social Determinants of Health, structural elements and conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work, and age, can lead to a holistic approach to disease prevention. By providing the necessary data and education, policy makers and public health practitioners can create and evaluate health interventions that promote and improve health equity for all.

Monitoring and Evaluation

In the past decade, the scale, scope, and complexity of health research and evaluation has grown rapidly, creating growing demand for qualified individuals to design, conduct, analyze, and evaluate health studies and programs across the globe.

Program Management

Effective leadership requires a unique set of professional skills, including program management. Building the essential tools and skills can enhance your ability to perform in a variety of population health settings by working to ensure that the essential elements of a program and program goals are met by providing decision making capacity that cannot be achieved at the project level. This may be accomplished by prioritizing resources, managing risks, motivating staff, and directing efforts to improve program performance through monitoring and evaluation. Effective use of focused and strategic leadership can help to improve the outcome of current and future projects.

Statistical Computing

Public health research produces a lot of data that needs to be evaluated in order to advocate for impactful interventions. Having a firm grasp of the statistical computing skill-set can help you analyze this information effectively.
