    Since 1900, life expectancy has increased by 30 years. Only 5 of those years can be attributed to curative medicine; the remaining 25 years are due to public health and prevention measures. On the Master's program in Health Sciences, you will learn to analyst the various complex factors that contribute to health and disease. Health scientists go beyond individual health and look at health problems at population level. Obesity can be solved by developing an anti-fat pill or by stomach reduction, but health scientists look at other possibilities such as increasing taxes on fatty foods, reducing the amount of sweets and soft drinks children can buy at school, designing residential areas so that there are places for children to play and educating people about healthy eating and exercise. Since health problems are complex, the solutions have to be implemented on different levels by a variety of professionals. As a health scientist, you will develop competences that enable you to cooperate with patient populations, health care professionals, policy makers and the greater public.
