This residential training programme for health professionals explores the complex fields of policy, financing, management and governance in Fragile and Conflict-affected Environments.

Content

What are the key issues in addressing governance challenges in fragile and conflict-affected environments? What are the consequences of health financing policies and what are the opportunities for developing an effective health workforce in countries emerging from crisis? This course explores the complex fields of policy, financing, management and governance. Participants discuss common patterns and approaches to policy analysis, explore the difficulties of resource allocation mechanisms, and evaluate the challenges of regulating health care provision in a crisis context. You will be exposed to real life examples, learning from successes and failures in rebuilding health sectors. Participants learn to define and explore policy options to address key policy gaps.

This course can be followed independently or as part of the Master in Public Health, track in Health Systems in Fragile and Conflict-affected Environments or as advanced module in the Master in International Health.
