Beschreibung The International Summer School will welcome up to 30 advanced international students (Masters or PhD level) working in global health or development economics. The summer school will address the central health challenges of the world today, focusing particularly on their many intersections with poverty. Participants will delve into the central question of the complex interplay of a person’s health status and economic prosperity or deprivation in the context of low- and middle-income countries.
Over the two-week program, students will become more familiarized with the most important global health challenges and explore the role health economics and policies play in tackling these. Students will benefit from a range of theoretical courses, research-orientated lectures, and practical activities. Theoretical and empirical courses will be held by renowned speakers from leading universities and institutes in global health. The practical activities include a two-day excursion to Berlin including a visit of the German Parliament and meetings with political decision-makers. In addition to that, the summer school will provide the opportunity of visits to other health institutes and health technology firms. In order to further foster group dynamics between attendees and give an insight into German cultural and historical heritage, a social program including an excursion to Wartburg will be part of the summer school.
