Public Health Research at University of Creative Technology Chittagong aims to shed light on the influence of the determinants of health , i.e factors (genetic, environmental, social, etc.) which determine population health. The department is trying toprovide important information about disease trends and risk factors, outcomes of treatment or public health interventions, functional abilities, patterns of care, and health care costs and use.Our research projects are always intended to be embedded into national and international colaborative activities andmake efforts to reach out to the platforms such as national&international journal, workshops and research conferences time to time.
