[Denmark] The Master of International Health Programme

International Health focuses on poverty-related health problems and health systems in low and middle income societies. A broad range of issues are included in research and training , with specific emphasis on analysis of the most widespread and serious diseases, as well as regional and local differences in health conditions; on the relationship between health systems and society, international health programmes and their effects, as well as disaster management and prevention. In recent years it has become clear that studies on health policy, health management, health economics, the blend of public and private health services, as well as user perspectives, must be given priority as important prerequisites for health development.
A number of disciplines relate to International Health: medical anthropology, biomedicine, epidemiology, tropical medicine, parasitology, public health, clinical and nursing sciences, biology, entomology, nutrition, demography, health economics, political science, sociology, etc. Resource persons from other departments and from various Danish and international institutions, are involved in the teaching. Teaching and research related to International Health are based on longitudinal studies , intervention studies, international comparative studies, and interdisciplinary collaboration.
