[+]

Best Course Studies in Business Studies in Netherlands 2017. This course is designed for senior managers who are actively involved in planning, management and evaluation of health sector reforms in developing countries. These senior managers may be working either in Ministries of Health; or they may be staff of embassies, international organisations, or NGOs developing partnerships with Ministries of Health within health reform. In this two week course held at the Royal Tropical Institute in Amsterdam (KIT) participants learn more about the most important topics in health policy, planning and financing, their effects on equity and efficiency, and their relation to the strengthening of health systems. This year the course will focus on reform in relation to Universal Health Coverage (UHC). *this course was formerly known as advanced course on Health Sector Reforms and Financing: towards universal health coverage Content Health systems in countries all over the world are facing challenges in order to meet the increasing needs and demands of their citizens. Since the new millennium, the international community has engaged in an active debate on how to ensure ‘access to good quality services according to needs and preferences, regardless of income level, social status, gender or residency’. WHO devoted the World Health Report of 2010 to ‘Universal Health Coverage’ sparking worldwide discussion. WHO has urged countries to move towards financing systems based on pre-payment in order to protect people from catastrophic expenditure and impoverishment while accessing health care services. In reality, low and middle income countries still largely depend on out-of-pocket payments for their health system funding. Despite global international investment most low-income countries will continue to depend on external assistance to achieve UHC. Achieving UHC requires that attention be paid not just to financial arrangements but also to addressing non-financial barriers to accessing services, such as geographical and cultural barriers, and problems of quality of care. Whilst aiming for UHC we also need to look at how resources can be allocated more efficiently. We are not just planning for health care but for all aspects of health and all its determining and contributing factors. This has to be done without marginalising the ‘bottom billion’: the poorest of the poor. We need to examine how health systems are performing in all their constituent parts. What do we know from experience? What is the best evidence we have for that? How do we translate such knowledge into policy? How does one convince policymakers who have so many interests to safeguard? Objectives This short course aims to help participants understand the context and scope of current reforms and financing options in the health sector of developing countries, with a particular focus on Universal Health Coverage. Course Content The following subjects are reviewed during the course: Introduction to health sector reform and UHC Introduction and comparative (dis)advantages of different modes of health systems financing External aid: its macro-economic effects and the challenges of raising additional domestic resources for UHC Demand side barriers to UHC Quality of care and Universal Health Coverage Operational challenges in implementing Social Health Insurance in LIC Provider payment Mechanisms and Results-based Financing Organisational reforms and their relation to UHC: Decentralisation, Privatisation, Integration of services, Health reforms and their impact on equity and inequalities Voice and accountability: How are the people involved in governance issues relating to UHC? The policy process and UHC. Measuring progress towards UHC Social Determinants of Health (SDOH), Health in All Policies (HiAP) and their relation to health systems (financing) Human Resources for Health: How will the HR crisis affect UHC? Learning methods The course consists of introductory lectures, exercises, case studies and interactive group discussions building on participants’ experiences with the respective topics and issues. A reader will be provided with essential literature that must be read before each class session. Assessment For participants who wish to be examined a paper or exam can be provided. tropEd students must take an exam at the end of the course. Accreditation This course is accredited by tropEd. It can be taken as an advanced module for the Master in International Health programme organised by TropEd, a network of European institutions for higher education in international health.

This course equips participants with up-to-date knowledge and state-of-the-art monitoring and evaluation (M&E) tools enabling them to answer such questions as: What models, frameworks and tools are suitable for a specific evaluation? How to balance the perspectives of different stakeholders? [+]

This advanced practitioners course equips participants with up-to-date knowledge and state-of-the-art monitoring and evaluation (M&E) tools enabling them to answer such questions as: What models, frameworks and tools are suitable for a specific evaluation? How to balance the perspectives of different stakeholders? Monitoring and evaluation skills are essential tools for working in a dynamic development environment. They aid decision making and lead to improvements in project impact through maximising the learnings available. This course is designed for senior managers who are actively involved in planning, management and evaluation of health sector reforms in developing countries. These senior managers might be either working in Ministries of Health, or they may be staff of embassies, international organisations, or NGOs developing partnerships with Ministries of Health within the scope of current health reforms. Content The new millennium has seen an increase in global aid for health. At the same time there is increasing emphasis on results, impact and aid effectiveness. Ongoing health reforms involve new modes of planning and implementation, new types of partnerships and cooperation. Are the reforms actually achieving their aims? What factors contribute to success or failure in a given context? There is a need to examine whether projects have an impact on population health, and whether the changes can be attributed to a specific intervention. Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) plays a crucial role in the planning of health sector reforms and policy shifts. At the same time, the sector requires innovative thinking in order to adapt to existing M&E systems. Adaptations in M&E systems are needed to monitor whether resource allocation follows priorities, scarce human resources are being used efficiently, and essential health services reach the poor and disadvantaged. The course will allow key staff in Ministries of Health as well as external development partners to gain a deeper understanding of the role M&E plays in all aspects of the health system including the institutional, political, financial, managerial, human resource, inter-sectoral and public health dimensions. Topics covered include M&E, and management information systems which provide the basic data required for informed and effective decision making, planning and implementation in a health system. New M&E frameworks, techniques and information technology will also be examined. Objectives The aim of this short course is to provide participants with a broad knowledge of advanced monitoring and evaluation tools and methods, and how to appropriately apply these in the health sector in developing countries. At the end of the course the participants will be able to: explain and critically discuss the fundamental concepts that underpin effective monitoring and evaluation of health programs within health systems identify the most appropriate strategy and evaluation design in a given situation, develop M&E plans, select, adapt and apply suitable tools as well as performance indicators and information management systems explain new and innovative approaches to M&E ranging from the appropriate use of technology through to new theoretical frameworks and approaches describe and critically analyse how aid architecture and multiple stakeholders in the health system influence the design of M&E address perspectives of different stakeholders in participation and decision making in the process of M&E interpret results, develop feedback and apply the information strategically Course Content The following subjects are reviewed during the course: Introduction to M&E: overview of concepts, methods, frameworks and tools M&E in the health sector: service delivery, health care financing, human resources Tools for M&E in supply and delivery systems Information management systems at national, local and project level Global Health Initiatives and the role of M&E Ensuring adequate data quality for M&E Innovative approaches to M&E Making M&E equity and gender aware Ethics, and dealing with conflicts of interest in M&E Learning methods The course consists of introductory lectures, exercises, case studies and interactive group discussions building on participants’ experiences with the respective topics and issues.

Sustainable Local Economic Development: Supporting Firms and Farms (LED)

IHS, Institute For Housing and Urban Development Studies of Erasmus University Rotterdam
Campus Part time 3 weeks May 2017 Netherlands Rotterdam

Rationale of the Training Course - Sustainable Local Economic Development: The focus of this course is on creating and managing multi-stakeholder processes that take place in the local and regional urban economy. [+]

Rationale of the training course

The focus of this course is on creating and managing multi-stakeholder processes that take place in the local and regional urban economy. Regions and localities are faced with two mayor trends in opposite directions: internationalisation and decentralisation. Internationalisation exacerbates the interactions between the global and the local levels but operates selectively. It includes only those actors that participate in networks in which competitiveness drives constant transformations and restructuring. Decentralisation is a means to coping with complexity and a reaction to growing demands for greater responsiveness and sustainability by citizens, clients and consumers. The two trends have changed the ways in which the multiple stakeholders relate to each other in the local and regional economy. Competition and cooperation are blended in the links between firms, between firms and state and non-state actors. The central concern for the governance of sustainable local economic development is to create synergies between the policies and interventions of business, state and non-state or civic actors. These come together around specific opportunities for local economic development for small and medium sized enterprises.... [-]

The buildings and sites to be visited are an example of an efficient use of technology and energy saving. They are all part of the change in the architectural model that is contributing to improve the daily life of the citizens and the city services management. [+]

Best Course Studies in Business Studies in Netherlands 2017. One course in two cities! The course examines the architecture and urbanism of two European cities (Barcelona and Almere) with a very different cultural and historical background. Barcelona was founded as a Roman city and has been growing through the ages; Almere is the youngest city in The Netherlands and has jumped straight into the future. But there is something they have in common: they both put innovation into perspective and have sustainability in the core business of their development. Dates and Schedule Week 1: from 06.07.2015 to 10.07.2015 Week 2: from 13.07.2015 to 17.07.2015 Course Level: Basic to Intermediate Credits: This course delivers 2.5 ECTS per stage + Certificate of Attendance The buildings and sites to be visited are an example of an efficient use of technology and energy saving. They are all part of the change in the architectural model that is contributing to improve the daily life of the citizens and the city services management. Barcelona has always been an important centre of business and culture and such traits can be traced in its urbanism and architecture: from the Roman colony, Barcino, and the still remaining walls to the middle age town with the revolutionary constructions in Catalan gothic style. From the expansion of the city in the XIX century with the Cerdà Plan, that was the framework in which Modernism was developed, to the end of the XX century, when the city reinvented itself again with the Olimpic vila and the 22@ neighbourhood. Almere has established an international reputation as a cradle of modern architecture. Some of the world’s most renowned architects have left their lasting marks on the city. Their ambitious and innovative creations have transformed the city into a showcase of the 21st century urban design, with relevant buildings and experimental housing projects. Experts Fedde Huistra and Bas Ten Brinke. Methodology The sessions on Urbanism and Architecture: Aspects of Sustainability will mostly be taught on site, with the support of some in-house lectures to provide the necessary background and overview. Students are encouraged to ask questions, actively participate in discussions, and comment on the reading materials assigned. Objectives Know first hand how new technologies are being applied in intelligent buildings and smart cities Experience what architects and town planners are doing to create a more sustainable environment Understand the benefits that the city can offer through the shift from a traditional to a sustainable and intelligent model Who should attend?
