Program Description:

SIT Study Abroad Switzerland: Global Health and Development Policy

Learn about global health and comparative public health systems within the framework of international and sustainable development, humanitarian action, human rights, and social justice, and compare the distinct public health systems of Switzerland and Morocco.

WHY STUDY GLOBAL HEALTH IN SWITZERLAND?

Geneva is the world capital of public health and sustainable development organizations, making it the ideal place to study global health and development policy. Meet with experts for briefings and lectures at the World Health Organization (WHO), International Committee of the Red Cross, and IOM, among others. An eight-day excursion to Morocco, including the modern capital Rabat and a rural area, allows you to compare and contrast public health systems in two countries and contextualize the impact of development on health.

Please visit the SIT Study Abroad website for details on the program highlights and details of coursework, educational excursions, and housing.
