Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drugs Within the field of Public Health, alcohol, tobacco and other drug use are associated with a significant burden of illness and injury in populations around the globe. In addition, individuals, families and communities experience adverse social harms arising from specific patterns of intoxication, modes of drug use and illicit drug markets. Global Health The Global Health plan explores health in a globalising world. It focuses on the impact of global interdependencies, on the social, environmental and political determinants of health, inequalities in health and the transfer of health risks at unprecedented scale. It examines policy responses to these challenges that are shaped by countries, but increasingly by diverse transnational and multilateral actors that shape health. The study of global health therefore is multidisciplinary, extending beyond the disciplines of public health to embrace politics, development, human rights and law and political economy. Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Health promotion and disease prevention teaching emphasises a broad ecological perspective on health behaviour and health promotion, including understanding the scope and purpose of health behaviour theories, and identifying what is most relevant from those theories that may be applied in practice.
