This programme is intended for public health professionals and health managers, who work at different levels of the health system. The main goal is to provide a large degree of autonomy in the use of public health methods to achieve the overall objective: “ensure methodological approaches and public health decision- making, consistent with the needs of people, communities and individuals.” This specialized master thus highlights the methodologies for analysing and investigating major health issues, especially in middle- and low-income countries, including a global health approach.

The programme consists in lectures, practical exercises as well as in-group and individual assignments and presentations.
At the end of the programme, the Master's thesis consists in producing an individual work which will be an integration of the several methods and concepts viewed during the year (biostatistics, epidemiology, public health systems…). It will be based on preexisting databases. A PhD project may also be prepared for the thesis evaluation with the support of teachers.

This training aims to strengthen the link between academic research and applied topics such as public health programmes and health systems management. It gives graduates knowledge and skills to undertake public health research as well as to provide leadership and technical support in public health programmes and policies, particularly in middle- and low-income countries.

Some lectures are given by invited experts, especially from middle- and low-income countries. Opportunities are also given to follow on one hand, local conferences and seminars (annual seminar of the Belgian Platform for International Health - Be-cause Health) and on the other hand, French classes.

This one-year Master enables health professionals to specialize and to master the tools necessary for the understanding of diseases and of their determinants (epidemiology and biostatistics), organization and policy, systems and health services management along with the development of social approaches to health. Transversal skills will be developed such as research methodology, scientific writing and capitalization of public health actions.
