ANTHROPOLOGY & PUBLIC HEALTH

The fields of anthropology and public health have common and complementary interests. The two disciplines’ practitioners can collaborate on community-based interventions, service delivery, and policy work in government, NGOs, and/or international organizations. Combined training in anthropology and public health broadens the skill set and knowledge of professionals produced by such training.
