Master - Policy stream: Global Health

General objective of the global health stream

The policy stream Global Health focuses on the most important challenges of the sector, ranging from health systems building, strengthening and resilience, to health financing and regulation, technological innovation, people-centred health care and the availability of sufficient human resources for health.

In order to fit with the sector's job market, the programme is based on a comparative approach and offers two different tracks:

  • The French track, entitled Santé (fr.)takes into account the specificities of the French job market (fr);
  • the English track, described below, offers large essential perspectives necessary to evolve within today's dynamic global health policy landscape.

The unique multidisciplinary approach of this policy stream trains students to implement integrative problem solving for complex global and domestic health issues, as well as attain integrative understandings of diseases and conditions that afflict developing and developed countries.
