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. However, in the implementation of pharmaceutical public health services it is still important for pharmacists to possess a current knowledge of the clinical management of key disease states. This is one of a series of subjects that review both the clinical management and the pharmaceutical public health issues associated with a range of key disease states. This subject focusses on three health problems that are prevalent in the developing world but which also have major implications or concerns for the developed world: HIV/AIDS, Malaria and Tuberculosis. The subject introduces the student to the pharmaceutcial public health issues associated with these diseases and some clinical management issues. it also introduces the student to the health activities of the UN Global Fund.
