Most demanded Sectors in Public Health
Public Health Sector An Overview The key is to
avoid as many people as possible from falling
into the vicious disease cycle, which means loss
of health, out-of-pocket expenditure, financial
stress and potential impact on a countrys GDP in
the long run, if not addressed. It includes many
more things like educating people, creating
awareness, undertaking groundbreaking research
initiatives, reducing vulnerabilities of women,
children and the elderly. It addresses the
nutritional requirements of the working
population, disability issues, and other general
issues, including mental health. This offers a
wide range of opportunities for a career in
public health that includes physicians, nurses,
epidemiologists, social workers, health
educators, nutritionists, safety professionals,
policymakers researchers and scientists. It is
multidisciplinary and highly diverse, with the
convergence of many specialized fields.
Current Public Health Scenario in Africa
  • Africa has long remained one of the most
    neglected places on earth and is home to a number
    of life-threatening epidemics, diseases, and
    pestilences. It has for centuries suffered the
    worst outbreak of deadly diseases accentuated by
    a crippling economy and devastating
    inter-regional disputes and ethnic conflicts. The
    World Health Organization (WHO) has done a
    remarkable job in drawing the attention of the
    world to the state of Public Health in Africa.
    There are several key points that are absolutely
    essential when discussing the health situation on
    the African continent. By 2050, nearly 60 of the
    population of the continent is expected to be
    living in urban areas and 35 40 of children and
    adolescents globally are projected to be living
    in Africa. With nearly 1.22 billion inhabitants,
    almost 60 of the population is struggling with
    HIV/AIDS. One of the leading causes of death, the
    tide has been stemmed thanks to anti-retroviral
    medication. 90 of all worldwide reported malaria
    deaths occur in Africa, while records of leprosy
    incidences have shown a remarkable decline.

  • Highest Paying Public Health Jobs
  • These are the fields in public health that bring
    lucrative career and growth opportunities and are
    ranked as high paying jobs. According to the
    Bureau of Labour Statistics, or BLS (US), the
    median salary for medical and health services
    managers is 96,540 while same for Health and
    Safety Engineers is around 86,720.
  • A well-qualified biostatistician can command a
    median salary of 81,950. This again varies with
    expertise and experience. Contrast this with the
    salary of a biostatistician in Africa (South
    Africa) which is approximately R359,000 per year
    and for an epidemiologist anywhere between
    R160,423 and R694,210 per year depending on their
    experience levels.

  • Functions of Public Health
  • There are 3 clearly defined functions of public
    health called, core functions.
  • Assessment Identifying, monitoring and
    quantifying key environmental parameters in
    public health to unambiguously arrive at issues
    to tackle.
  • Policy Development Once areas to work on have
    been identified, policies have to be put in place
    that aims at disease prevention and mitigation.
  • Assurance By sound regulatory measures, safety
    parameters, linking all stakeholders, periodic
    assessment of deliverable, tracking developments,
    we assure the public at large that things are
    being taken care of.
