Pharmaceutical Public Health is a developing specialty which seeks to influence pharmaceutical health determinants on a population basis, rather than having a focus on the individual patient. Primary areas of activity for pharmaceutical public health are in rural and remote health services, health services in developing countries, and in regulatory activities associated with pharmaceutical services. This subject is intended to introduce the student to concepts relating to the management and control of pharmaceutical services in these situations including legislative controls, assessment of pharmaceutical services and improving access to medication and pharmacy services.
