The objective of the Seminar is to strengthen the health system by ensuring quality health care delivery especially for the poor. India Is experiencing a rapid health transition. It is confronted both by the infectious diseases like Tuberculosis, Malaria, Kala Azar, leptospirosis, etc., and nutritional deficien-cies like Malnutrition. There are also the challenges of managing non-communicable diseases. In the current situation Dengue and Chikungunya are prevalent in Kerala. Inadequacy is felt in public health research, education and training in India. Hence this Seminar focuses on research into urban and rural public health issues and epidemiological studies of major public health problems, especially those in Kerala. Basically the public health system aims to understand and influence the social. cultural and economic determinants of health and to study and structure health systems as efficient channels for rendering appreciable health services. Education and training in public health needs to be inter-disciplinary in content so that the pathways of public health action are multi-sectorial.
Public health education must include subject areas like epidemiology, bioStatistICS, behavioural sciences, health economics, health services management, environmental health, health inequities and human rights, gender and health, health communication, ethics of health care and research. The inter-ventions proposed need to be evidence-based, context-specific and resource-sensitive.
