A person’s right to the highest attainable standard of health has no geographical or social bounds. However, poverty and lack of democratic governance impede many people’s access to this right. In order to abolish health inequalities, global partnerships and the effective spread of knowledge are essential. We must therefore educate future public health experts who have a broad, interdisciplinary perspective and a will to participate in this global effort.



The programme’s focus is therefore cross-disciplinary with a consistent global perspective, and provides students with evidence-based knowledge, skills and tools necessary for policy-making as well as for field work. Course leaders and guest lecturers have substantial experience in a range of disciplinary and geographical contexts, and originate from countries such as Sweden, Ghana, Greece, Nigeria, India and USA.

The diversity and experience of fellow students also contributes to the stimulating learning environment. As one student expressed it, “The class and teaching are a microcosm of the global context we’ll face in work life.”


Alumni are currently employed at a variety of top governing institutions such as national ministries of health, UNICEF, WHO, and various NGOs. The programme also provides preparation for PhD studies and an academic career.
