Our program focuses on one hand on infectious disease control as a core issue of health security, and on the other hand on the impact of global policy on chronic disease. In particular, we have adopted quantitative and qualitative approaches to analyze issues related to the 2005 International Health Regulations for infectious disease control, as well as problems tackled by the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control. Elements of AI technology are also incorporated in our research activity, as analysis and solution tools. Our team is international and strongly interdisciplinary, the areas of expertise of our faculty members including medicine, public health, health management, pharmacy, law, environmental health, data science, big data, and international health security.
Our courses are fully taught in English and aim at providing both theoretical and practical training, in order to guide our students through the complexity of the international health management system and norms, to make them critically understand the magnitude of cross-country differences in terms of health development, to gain a deeper understanding of the main issues related to global health policy development, and ultimately to acquire professional knowledge in global health. We believe our students one day can become successful professionals and even leaders in global health.
