Detailed information about this course:
In the ‘2030 Agenda for sustainable development’, the United Nations described 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), including interrelated goals on poverty reduction, population health, the living environment, and climate change. Achieving these goals requires multidisciplinary and international collaboration, in which public health experts also need to play an important role. This course is focussed on three important questions: What is the evidence for these connections, which public health interventions can synergistically work towards a sustainable future, and how to advise local or national governments best about this? Although priorities differ between countries, these questions are universal.
The programme consists of ‘capita selected lectures’, lectures and training in valorisation, and a group exercise.
After this course, students:
- Understand and can describe links between sustainable development goals and public health based;
- Understand main research methods and approaches for generating research evidence to inform policy and improve public health and health systems;
- Understand the role of scientific evidence in public health policy making and the factors that inhibit or facilitate the adoption of policies at different levels.
This course is a highly recommended elective for students with a major in public health epidemiology.
