Program Overview

Program Description:
Dates: May 19-30, 2014 Level: Graduate students only Credits: 3 Thailand has seen major improvements in all sectors of health and development in the last few decades. Life expectancy increased to approximately 70 years at birth, the vast majority of the population now has access to safe drinking water and sanitation, and a system providing universal health care for Thai nationals was introduced in 2002. Yet, serious challenges remain, including the management of HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria and other infectious diseases. The purpose of this course is to provide students with knowledge and skills in the basic concepts, principles and methodologies of implementing and evaluating health and development interventions. As part of the coursework, we will study established and new approaches to program planning and M&E at the case of the comprehensive and successful HIV/AIDS response in Thailand as well as other examples from the local context. At the end of the course, the students will be able to design and implement a small program evaluation with assistance.

Participants in the course will learn through practical exercises as well as field trips, guest speakers and involvement with local public health personnel and Thai government officials. This will include visits to international organizations and local and international NGOs working on health and development in Thailand.
