London school of hygiene and tropical medicine global health

These programmes provide students with an in-depth understanding of the planning and delivery of policy responses to global health concerns and issues. They focus on approaches to effective policy-making which contributes to the protection and promotion of population health in a globalising world, at both national and transnational levels.

These are the world’s first Master’s level programmes on global health policy by distance learning. They are aimed at students and professionals from both health and non-health backgrounds who seek to understand more about the policy environment associated with issues of global health. They will be of value especially to those seeking to assume positions related to issues of global health policy in national, regional or global health organisations, health-related research institutions, non-governmental organisations and private consultancies.
