HKUMed UG Prospectus 2022

Why was the BASc(GHD) created Challenges such as chronic and infectious diseases; the development of better and more accessible health systems; the reduction of poverty and inequities; the consequences of societal and conflict-related displacement; and the existential planetary threats of climate change are at the heart of modern health and development. To tackle such complex and rapidly evolving challenges, not only will it require approaches that consider the health of people and the development of communities and countries together, but also ideas that combine and cross disciplines. The BASc(GHD) was created to better prepare the next generation of leaders who will work on (and solve) such deeply important challenges. We are here to facilitate you in finding out the ambition of this programme and to accompany you in preparing your lifelong career. Welcome to the Voyage from Pokfulam to the World! Dr Pui Hong Chung Clinical Associate Professor of Practice and BASc(GHD) Programme Director 4
