Learn about health and development policy in Nyon and Geneva, the world capital for international organizations dedicated to public health, social justice, and sustainable development. Students will learn through on-site briefings and lectures with experts at international and nongovernmental organizations such as the University Hospital of Geneva, the the United Nations Development Programme, and the International Committee of the Red Cross.

Students will spend most of their class time at the academic center in Nyon with frequent trips to Geneva to meet with international organizations. Travel to Morocco to visit health institutions and see contrasting public health systems in the capital, Rabat, and a rural area. Students will meet with Moroccan leaders of the Public Health Ministry and Pan-African Organization against AIDS. This excursion allows them to consider the complexity of healthcare systems and health and development policy from diverse vantage points.
