In Stage 2 students will build on the principles learned in Stage 1 to consider public health initiatives and community supports in specific populations, such as the elderly, children and adolescents, sexual and gender minorities, people with disabilities, cancer and mental health issues, rural and international populations. They will understand and describe the roles and relationships between health agencies and services, and explain the principles of efficient and equitable allocation of finite resources, to meet individual, community and national health needs.
