Fall 2014 Institute - Health Systems Strengthening: Improving Governance and Ensuring Equity
Location: Ottawa, Canada
Date: Wednesday November 5 - Sunday November 9 2014 (all day)
Interested in global health and governance?
The Centre for Global Health (University of Ottawa) and the Swiss Tropical and Public health Institute of Basel are combining forces and faculty to offer a timely and dynamic, problem-based learning experience in a one week certificate course prior to the 20th Canadian Conference on Global Health.
The course is designed to provide a platform for analysis and dialogue to interpret the dynamic social trends and their influence on the evolution of global health and health systems strengthening. This multidisciplinary course is intended for a wide audience, including health development practitioners, health and development donors, civil society representatives, students and mid-level government officials working in the area of global health.
The objective of the course is for students to acquire practical foundations in health system strengthening by:
1) Understanding current dynamics and trends in global health and global health governance
2) Understanding how these dynamics play out in local national health systems
3) Develop strategies for how to navigate in this changing scene in support of health systems and policy strengthening.
Prospective students should have, at a minimum, a Bachelor's degree from an accredited university. Preference will be given to students who have a Master's degree from any related discipline or five years of experience in a related area. Students are expected to have full proficiency (written and spoken) in English.
To apply to the course please submit your CV, as well as a paragraph outlining your learning objectives and how you expect the course to meet those objectives.
The fee for the course is $1200.00 CAD for high income country participants and $800.00 CAD for low income country participants. This includes teaching materials and lunches. To submit your application and for questions, please contact Janet Hatcher-Roberts email@example.com
The organizers reserve the right to cancel the course should there be insufficient enrollment.
