UNU-EHS to support new Global Health Risk Management and Hygiene Policies MSc. course

  • 2017•04•20     Bonn

    The United Nations University Institute for Environment and Human Security (UNU-EHS) will be offering its expert support to a new two-year MSc course in Global Health Risk Management and Hygiene Policies.

    The course will be hosted through the Medical Faculty at the University of Bonn, Germany, with the support of UNU-EHS and other institutions from the University of Bonn itself. The programme comprises a full-time intensive first year of study in Bonn that covers a range of disciplines related to global health and hygiene concepts. During the second year of the programme, depending on their professional backgrounds, students will undertake internships and write up a thesis.

    The new course aims at training leaders in the implementation and monitoring of public health and, more specifically, to help professionals in the fields of health and hygiene contribute to the accomplishment of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Among these ambitious goals are those aimed at reducing death and illness from environmental pollution and risks, to achieve adequate access to clean water, to provide equitable sanitation and hygiene for all, and to achieve universal health coverage. To implement these changes there is a growing need for vibrant and energetic health workers with specialist technical skills, a core aim of this new MSc programme in Bonn.
