The Global Health programme of University of Geneva provides students the toolbox to understand and analyse health issues whose determinants are interlinked and whose complexity transcends borders and sectors of activity. The MScGH seeks to combine the most relevant approaches on global health drawing on the perspectives of all relevant academic disciplines and global health actors based in Geneva.
The MScGH is specifically designed to take advantage of the rich international environment of Geneva. To this end, the programme is run by the Global Studies Institute (GSI). The programme provides an opportunity to study where many health issues are discussed at the global level and to accomplish practical training in different setting such as NGOs and international organizations.
The MScGH aims to prepare students to work in organizations such as international organizations (e.g. WHO, UNICEF, ICRC…), civil society such as non-governmental organization (e.g. MSF, Care, Oxfam…), public sector at national (e.g. Ministry of health of foreign affairs, development agency) or local level (e.g. public health authorities), public private partnerships and private sector (e.g. pharmaceutical industry).
