Event description

Negotiating health in an interdependent world

As health moves beyond its purely technical realm to become an ever more critical element in foreign policy, security policy, and trade agreements, new skills are needed to negotiate global regimes, international agreements and treaties, and to maintain relations with a wide range of stakeholders. This course focuses on health diplomacy as it relates to health issues that transcend national boundaries and are global in nature. The course discusses the challenges facing health diplomacy and how they are being addressed by different groups and at different levels of governance.

This 8-week interactive course is jointly organised by the Global Health Programme (GHP) at the Graduate Institute Geneva and DiploFoundation. Course curriculum was developed by the GHP, led by Professor Ilona Kickbusch.
