International Public Health (Germany) 

This summer study abroad program was launched by the Department of Behavioral and Community Health in May 2013 and is part of a recently executed cooperative agreement between the School of Public Health and the University of Cologne. This 10-12 day study abroad course compares the practice and venues for public health practice as they occur in the Federal Republic of Germany. Health issues unique to and associated with the country are examined. The experience is a comparative assessment of individual and community health needs, program planning and implementation, coordination and administration of programs, resource availability, health communication initiatives, research programs, policies, surveillance, environmental protection, health behavior, and social approaches to public health practice.  For more information click here.

UMD-WINTER: India: East Meets West: Contrasting Public Health Priorities, Pragmatics and Polemics in the US and India

As we head further into the 21st century, India and the U.S. represent our two largest democracies. Based on culture, history, governance and politics, these two countries have adopted similar and unique ways of addressing public health concerns. This course, designed for students who are interested in public health in a global context, will expose participants to policy and programmatic frameworks for the delivery of public health services in these two cultures. Students will explore global public health and its complexities through a combination of in-class instruction and lively discussion with Manipal MPH students and faculty, and field trips to community-based programs.  For more information click here.
