Master of Public Policy  

Design and evaluation of health policies

Healthcare is one of the largest and fastest growing sectors in the world. It is also one of the most complicated sectors to manage given the uncertainty of healthcare demand and the frequency of government intervention. This project course introduces students to the challenges that health systems face in designing policies to improve efficiency and population health. It is designed to help students think in a critical and creative manner about the challenges of health policy through a social and economic lens. The course covers aspects on the organisation and financing of specific health systems, impact evaluation of health policies, and cost-effectiveness of public programs. It will also provide students the opportunity to redesign crucial aspects of health policies jointly with the project partner.

This course is for 1st year MPP students only.
