This course is targeted at those who aspire to management positions in the public health. This track is designed specifically for those who wish to work at the interface of policy and management, withing different health systems contexts.
Health systems in low-and middle-income countries face a wide range of complex challenges. These
challenges include, but are not limited to: the inequalities in health and healthcare; the double burden of communicable and non-communicable diseases; the challenges presented by the unfolding demographic transition; the health needs in fragile environments, and the call for equity.
The worlds of international and national health governance and financing are also increasingly complex and interconnected. Globally, there is also a greater recognition of, and emphasis upon the importance of working in partnerships, at all times, to provide evidence-based public health solutions for continuously improving the quality and responsiveness of health services. Providing an effective response to these issues requires well-trained professionals able to solve complex public health problems systematically,
using a partnership approach.
The MPH/ICHD is designed to develop the capacity of senior health managers to use an integrated,
multi-disciplinary approach to address health problems in their country.
