|Course description||In a globalizing world, health challenges are also transcending national boundaries and becoming more complex. A two-way flow of resources, expertise, and know-how between developed and developing countries is needed to deal with these challenges. This course offers students an in-depth analysis of the growing complexity of the burden of disease, particularly in low and middle-income countries, as well as the main challenges surrounding health systems, infectious and non-communicable conditions, child health, and reproductive health. Students will gain a critical and holistic view on these challenges as well as potential solutions. The VU Amsterdam University's association with the Amsterdam Institute of Global Health and Development (AIGHD) offers students access to an extensive network of partners and experts in health and related domains that invite students to think critically global health issues via group discussions and debates. Students' learning is further enriched through interviews with key local and international actors in the field as well as a visit to a relevant institution, such as the Royal Tropical Institute or the Amsterdam Community Health Service.|
