There is an increasing recognition that global health crises demand solutions that move beyond established public health responses to include more comprehensive solutions to the long-term developmental needs of local communities. This new programme offers students the chance to blend established health and development approaches to tackle the contested contemporary terrains of development and global health politics. Combining the latest research in these fields, we encourage students to challenge conventional ways of approaching questions of health and development, while also considering alternative ways of promoting and securing advances in human well-being.
This programme: - provides students with a detailed understanding of emerging debates and agendas within development and global health policy and practice - encourages students to examine the intersections between questions of development and global health, using a critical geographical approach to problematise established theories, practices and policies - provides students with training and one-to-one tailored supervision as they develop independent desk-based and field research through a dissertation and optional fieldwork.
