The minor focuses on trends in health and health care viewed from a global perspective, and the challenges that we as health professionals will face over the next 10 years and beyond. How do these developments relate to the desire to live longer while staying healthy and active as we age? How can we cooperate on an international level to organise prevention and self-management? How can we encourage healthy behaviour in such a way that everybody receives the care they need, not only in the Netherlands but in other countries around the world?The minor Global Health brings together a range of disciplines such as epidemiology, sociology, cultural studies, technology, public health reflecting the collaborative approach in addressing the key helath concerns that adversely affect human populations. 

The framework of the minor programme consists of four inter-related modules:

  • Global Health (5 EC)
    It takes into account the influence of wider aspects such as globalisation, social determinants, health systems and international policies that lie outside the direct sphere of influence of an individual or population. The newly acquired knowledge can be used to set up effective strategies for policy advice in one's own professional field.

  • Culture and Health (5 EC)
    This module provides cultural insights related to health, disease, the body and ways of communication and allows opportunites to improve intercultural skills. Here you will also explore how your own perspectives are shaped by cultural background and experiences.

  • Future of Health (5 EC)
    How do societal developments in health care impact individuals and populations? What measures can be taken to ensure healthy ageing? Preventative and self care? What processes of growth, change and stability will we be dealing with as we age? This module examines future challenges faced by health care professionals of the future.

  • Health and Technology (5 EC)
    Here we look at how ehealth and health technology can successfully contribute to changes in health care. In part as a result of an ageing population, the need for cost effectiveness, knowledgeable and empowered patients – there is an increasing need and demand for self management. The ways in which E-health and health technology can contribute to the various challenges facing health care systems and health care delivery are key aspects of this component.

The four modular components are equally weighted at 5 credits. Each module takes around 5 weeks. There is the opportunity for these to be selected as singular "stand alone" modules – or for a combination of modules (dependant on the credit requirement and the period in which each module is offered)  

  • Innovation project  (10 EC)
    The minor additionally prepares students to cooperate in international, multidisciplinary teams by executing a real project about a health problem in an international context. Within this integral task, which makes up the core of the minor, you will develop a  health solution for a Global Health problem in a group setting.
