Elective Track Thammasat University Thailand
Full course description
In addition to the core courses offered at Maastricht, students will have the opportunity to enhance their knowledge about specific topics through a choice of elective tracks. These tracks are carefully selected to avoid overlap with the core programme, yet ensuring relevant contribution to the core programme.
The track in Thailand builds on the “Governing Health in a Global Context” module taught in the first trimester and will deepen the understanding of aspects related to political economy and health systems in low-income settings. Particular attention is paid to governing the interface of migration and health and its consequences (gender specific health risk, urbanization and health risks, equity and health), governing disease control in low-income settings and human rights and human security and health. The track discusses the needs, the possibilities, and impossibilities of (collaborative) (global) action and of current approaches, interventions, and policies. The track includes the following modules: “Human Security a Global Perspective”, “Human Rights and Global Health", "Mobility and Global Health, "Diseases Control and Global Health", "Political Economy of Global Health", and "Globalization and Health Systems".
Deepen insight in global health governance from a low-income setting perspective, with special attention for mobility, human rights, and human security.
