About

Global Health Systems Theory and Policy programme offered at Queen Mary University of London considers how the principles and practice of effective and fair public health care can inform health policy and health care systems in national and local settings.

Overview

Overview

Global Health Systems Theory and Policy programme offered at Queen Mary University of London analyses the principles of health systems, and makes global linkages to social, political, economic, and cultural issues in individual countries and themes. Students will gain an understanding of competition and trade law and regulation and its application to public health care. This programme is of particular interest to medical and clinical practitioners, civil servants, public health practitioners, social and political scientists, lab scientists, and NGO workers.

High quality primary health care and public health systems form the cornerstone of an efficient, effective, and equitable health system. Many countries (whether low-, middle- or high-income) are seeking to shift from a secondary care led, disease-oriented and ‘reactive’ healthcare system to one characterised by a strong primary care sector offering ‘proactive’, whole-patient care through measures such as patient education, prevention, early diagnosis, support for self-care, risk factor and chronic disease management, and systematic gate-keeping to the secondary care sector.

Career:

There are a number of distinct features about the course which include: an emphasis on the social determinants of health; a focus on the interface between politics and policy; a concern for social justice; and a stress upon primary care acting as a platform for effective public health action.

The offers an opportunity to develop a pronounced multi-disciplinary analysis that includes sociology, anthropology, economics, law, geography as well as public health medicine. You will therefore learn from a truly multidisciplinary programme, which will give you a genuinely broad education and wide perspective.
