The practice of “public health” as we now know it, is relatively new. In the USA for example, the first schools of public health were only instituted in 1915. However, various forms of health intervention at the population level have been practiced since the beginnings of civilization. Recently, this field has had to tackle ever more complex challenges—with just a few hours of travel time separating continents, health experts are increasingly faced with the implications of the globalization of public health. This has been particularly evident with the emergence of the Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic of 2020 which has presented public health challenges on a scale not previously seen.
Public health consultants are usually self-employed professionals. The freelance public health consultant hourly rate generally ranges from 40–100 USD per hour depending on how specialized the required skillset is and the level of experience necessary.
The hourly fee can be negotiated upfront based on the estimated number of project hours, or a flat fee (for projects of a defined scope) can be discussed. If you need short-term/temporary access to online health consultants, then hiring a freelance consultant on our platform is a convenient and cost-effective way to access this type of expertise.
Public health is a highly interdisciplinary area, involving fields such as epidemiology, biostatistics, social sciences, health economics, public policy, and health education. Public health uses science to determine the causes of disease, prevent diseases from re-occurring, improve peoples’ health and overall quality of life, educate and empower the community on healthcare matters, and organize healthcare services. Many of these activities require medical health experts to develop, improve, and implement public health policy. Thus, while medical practitioners necessarily treat one individual at a time, public health practitioners look for solutions at the community, population, and national levels.
The various duties that public health specialists perform include:
· Conducting research and analysis to address different healthcare issues
· Communicating their findings to healthcare providers, government agencies, and non-profit organizations
· Using their findings to guide the development or improvement of public health policies and programs
· Planning and implementation of these policies and programs at local, regional, national, and sometimes even global, levels
Public health specialists work for universities, non-profits, healthcare businesses and organizations, government agencies such as the FDA, CDC, and NIH, or for smaller local and regional government departments. Their job titles range between Consultant Epidemiologist, Emergency Preparedness Coordinator, Health Communications Specialist, Management Policy Adviser, Mental Health Educator, Public Health Consultant, Public Health Information Officer, Public Health Planner, and Public Health Lawyer. There are also public health content writers who specialize in writing in this area for academia, media, and industry, and these professionals have job titles such as Medical Writer or Public Health Journalist.
Public health consultants typically have a master’s or doctoral degree in public health or an allied discipline. Some public health consultants obtain their graduate degree in general public health, while other professionals specialize in fields such as biostatistics, epidemiology, health policy or environmental health.
The best way to attract the top Kolabtree freelancers in this field is to make your project description informative. You will need to provide information on the following:
· Skills required (e.g., health education, communication)
· What the project area is (e.g., personal hygiene)
· What the project entails (e.g., designing materials for schools to highlight the importance of handwashing and other aspects of personal hygiene)
· What the deliverables are (be specific about what you need the outputs to be)
· Duration of the project (provide an estimate of how many hours work you will need per week/by when you need the project to be completed)
· By when you need to hire (having more leeway on this will give you more time to choose the best expert for your needs)
· Your budget (per hour or fixed fee)
If you are unsure what exactly is required, providing as much detail as possible will allow the experts to still make an informed bid for your project and suggest the best routes forward.
Public health consultants offer a broad range of skills, including data analysis, communication, technical writing, quantitative modeling, problem-solving, and project management. Our platform allows clients to easily connect and work with these professionals.
