Are you ready to unravel the complexity of global health challenges and contribute to better health for all? Then this Research Masters in Global Health may be the Master's you are looking for.
Our programme offers you the opportunity to learn about and work on global health challenges, by crossing disciplinary boundaries and collaborating with social stakeholders. Many diseases, such as Zika virus do not stop at national borders, and most health problems have social, political and economic impacts. With the world's population becoming increasingly interdependent, there is need for a vision on health that spans the globe and promotes shared responsibility. Global health is defined as the broad field of study, research and practice geared towards improving health and achieving equity in health. Global health researchers need inter- and transdisciplinary approaches in order to study and unravel complex health problems. They need to cross disciplinary boundaries and interact with health professionals, patients, policy-makers, public and private sector stakeholders to gain an in-depth understanding of global health problems. However, their role does not stop here. Global health researchers also need to bring these different stakeholders together to set out cohesive and strategic action to solve these problems.
