Global Health Challenges and Governance Specialization

This specialisation serves to introduce and integrate the key concepts of global health, globalisation and governance to understanding major challenges and threats to global health. It aims to provide learners with opportunities to understand the complex international setting of global health, the role of important stakeholders and the need for good governance in global health. Learners will be introduced to some of the most important challenges to global health and their implications in global health practice. Learners will discuss the main drivers of global health challenges, including global change and globalisation, and consider issues of inequity surrounding the impact of these challenges.
Learners will explore how the capacity to influence health determinants, status and outcomes cannot be assured through national actions alone because of the intensification of cross-border and trans-border flows of vectors, people, goods, services and ideas. By the end of the specialisation, learners should be able to effectively advocate, to a wide range of audiences, for specific action/s on topical global health challenges and propose evidence-informed measures that could be introduced to mitigate the impacts on health.
What You Will Learn:
Identify obstacles, be they biomedical, economic, political and social, in addressing global health challenges
Describe the complexity of global health governance and critique the role of institutional actors and the role of international collaboration
Discuss the current and predicted impact of global challenges representing major threats to global health and development
Assess public policy making within the context of specific global health challenges and contemporary global governance structures
