Improving health and achieving equity in health

How can we improve health and achieve equity in health? What are the social, political and economic impacts of health problems and diseases? What are the effects of rising costs of healthcare around the globe?

New and emerging infectious diseases, changing disease patterns, ageing, rising costs of healthcare – these are problems that add complexity to the already considerable health challenges the world is facing today. To effectively address these complex health challenges, global health researchers need to cross-disciplinary boundaries and interact with health professionals, patients and others to gain in-depth understanding of global health problems, and to set out cohesive and strategic action to solve these problems.

'What I really enjoyed in the minor Global Health was the wide variety of current and future health challenges: like the upsurge of diabetes in developing countries, very recent Zika- and Ebola outbreaks and refugee health for example. The passionate guest speakers put these issues into different perspectives, making it very lively lectures."
