Teaching and Research Areas


These specialised areas help the Institute to attend to the growing and changing demands in the world of population. With these specialised areas, the Institute has expanded its teaching and research programmes to cover the following:

Population and family health issues
Population, education and development
Population and social development
Population and environment issues
Population, health policy and Administration
Population and communicable diseases
Population and non-communicable diseases
Nuptiality and population growth
Survey methods and statistical computations
Climate variability and implications for human health
Climate change, migration and livelihood
Population, climate change and food security

The purpose of having the expanded teaching and programmes is to make the Institute more attractive to prospective applicants. The objective is not to duplicate programmes being run in other departments but to strengthen the population components (population growth, fertility, mortality, morbidity migration, nuptiality and household structure) as they interrelate with these disciplines.
