The M.A. Social Work in Public Health aims to address the multifaceted dimensions of health in a changing socio-economic context. It looks to develop skills in social work professionals to analyse health issues in micro, meso, and macro contexts, as well as to work towards protecting health as a human right. This programme is a response to redress the limited institutional capacity in India for strengthening training, research and policy development in the area of health social work. In this scenario, health social workers are uniquely positioned to make interventions both at the individual and community levels. At an individual level, the objective of health social workers is to offer them psycho-social support as well as their families in dealing with communicable and non-communicable diseases through counselling patients and advising family caregivers. At the community level, given their professional skill set, social workers are best placed to design, implement and manage those aspects of community health which require on the one hand, involvement of the community and groups, and on the other, engagement with the health system, particularly in its interface with people/users.

Social workers with a specialised knowledge of community health are also well placed to design, implement and manage larger and more complex interventions, which form a significant component of social change, as this community-based health advocacy needs to be evidence-based, context-specific and resource-sensitive. This programme will prepare health professionals to work with socially, culturally and economically diverse populations by being attentive to the needs of vulnerable and disadvantaged groups. It will work towards imparting qualities of leadership among health social work professionals, and effectively use communication skills for health advocacy. This programme equips students to work in different capacities in diverse settings: government institutions, non-government organisations, hospitals and research-based organisations, as well as in sectors like HIV/AIDS, disaster, courts and counselling centres.
