This course introduces students to the basic principles of international health, in order to give them a better understanding of the wider context of health systems and public health across various countries.. The course provides an overview of health systems and public policy issues in low and middle-income countries, and covers concepts such as the transition during development, globalization and health, financing and organisation, as well as the role of the private sector, non-government-organisations and international organisations. The course is designed to provide a background for working with communities and organisations that are responsible for funding and/or providing health care and health promotion in developing and transition countries. There is a focus on the social determinants of health and global health equity. With the help of case studies, the course provides an understanding about the delivery of health care, public health and health promotion in disadvantaged communities. The lectures and case studies discussion highlights the role of communities, clients, community based organisations, public and private sector providers and funding agencies. Factors facilitating access, quality, cost and fairness of services and programs are discussed.
