This programme aims to develop critical analysis of issues within health policy, planning and financing, and be able to devise appropriate health policy responses. The programme is taken by students from a wide range of backgrounds including: social science or medical training; health service managers or health care providers and those who have worked in national health care systems, international agencies or NGOs. This programme provides training relevant to countries at all levels of development, although participants are able to specialise in issues of common concern to countries with similar health systems and problems.
Graduates from this programme go into international and national health policy and planning. They work for governments, international agencies, NGOs and the private sector as health policy-makers, researchers, advisers or work in advocacy or training.
