Description

International health studies examine the design, implementation and evaluation of programs that address the major public health priorities of communities in developing countries.

Public health issues are presented in the broader context of economic and social development, stressing cultural, political, gender and environmental influences, and the impact of armed conflict and population migration. During their studies students also have the opportunity to learn about human rights, ethics, law and development. Course content is informed by actual field experiences gained by the Burnet Institute in their wide range of health developement projects in more than 20 countries in Asia, the Pacific and Africa.
