Year 12 - Health and Human Development - Miss Sly and Miss Dellamina's Classes: Unit 4: AOS 2 - Promoting Global Health
Area of study 2 -Health and the Sustainable Development Goals
This area of study looks at action for promoting health globally. It looks at the rationale, objectives and interdependencies of the UN’s SDGs, focusing on their promotion of health and wellbeing and human development. Students investigate the priorities and work of the WHO and evaluate Australia’s aid program and the role of non-government organisations, selecting one aid program for detailed research and analysis. They reflect on meaningful and achievable individual actions that could contribute to the work of national and international organisations that promote health and wellbeing.
On completion of this unit the student should be able to analyse relationships between the SDGs and their role in the promotion of health and human development, and evaluate the effectiveness of global aid programs. To achieve this outcome the student will draw on key knowledge and key skills outlined in Area of Study 2.

Education: What Australian aid is doing
Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade - Australian Aid video library
Promoting opportunities for all is one of the five strategic goals of Australia's aid program. In education this means enabling more children, particularly girls, to attend school for a longer and better education so they have the skills to build their own futures and, in time, escape poverty.
Australia will provide a mix of support, enhancing partnerships with partner governments, multilateral organisations, NGOs, civil society organisations and the private sector, particularly in the Asia-Pacific region.
