While international investors, healthcare equipment manufacturers and pharmaceutical companies are increasingly becoming aware of the business potential offered by the African market, the need for specialised personnel to manage available resources increases. According to the Financial Times, healthcare in sub-Saharan Africa will be needing, by 2022, investments totaling more than 25 billion USD in physical assets alone, such as hospitals and clinics.

The University of South Wales MSc Public Health equips students with the ability to actively shape the public healthcare sector of their country, by learning the insights of negotiating, planning, implementing and evaluating policy and practice initiatives.
