LSTM’s Global Health programmes seek to address priorities identified in several global health frameworks. These include:
- addressing global health inequalities through workforce development;
- leadership in health systems improvements;
- facilitating universal health coverage;
- promoting gender equity; and
- creating meaningful partnerships for global health.
The programmes are underpinned by LSTM’s mission of decreasing the global disease burden through research, education and building capacity. The programmes also contribute towards building skills and competencies of organisations and individuals working in the global health sector.
Graduates will develop high-level transferable knowledge, intellectual and practical skills, enabling them to take a leadership role in providing technical support and addressing the social determinants of health. Graduates will be able to work with diverse populations and in a wide range of settings.
The programmes’ competency-based curriculum was developed following close consultation with employers and key stakeholders, a review of global health competencies from renowned global health agencies and informed by evidence from global health employers to ensure relevancy and graduate employability.
The MSc, PGDip and PGCert programmes cover a wide range of global health topics that provide graduates with key analytical, technical and practical skills for working in a diverse global world.
