The Global Health Policy (Distance learning) programme at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine focuses on approaches to effective policy-making which contributes to the protection and promotion of population health in a globalising world, at both national and transnational levels.
These programmes are aimed at students and professionals from both health and non-health backgrounds who seek to understand more about the policy environment associated with issues of global health.
They will be of value especially to those seeking to assume positions related to issues of global health policy in national, regional or global health organisations, health-related research institutions, non-governmental organisations and private consultancies.
