Increasing international focus on aid effectiveness has brought renewed attention to the role of evidence in identifying health needs and designing and evaluating programs.
13 – 17 February 2017
The University of Melbourne, Parkville campus
This subject will use case studies of current global health challenges, drawing on speakers' field experiences, through which students will be exposed to the principles and techniques of situation assessment and program design. Both conventional and innovative methods for community situation assessments and program design will be described and some practiced.
Students will apply these learnings in practical, staged exercises to draft strategic program plans. They will also be asked to consider evidence requirements and real-world compromises in programmatic research and planning within complex global health settings.
