Sexual and Reproductive health and Rights including HIV and AIDS (SRHR incl. HIV AIDS)

Royal Tropical Institute (KIT)
Campus Full time 3 weeks March 2018 Netherlands Amsterdam

An in-depth look at important issues and current debates in sexual reproductive health policy, including HIV and AIDS, towards more inclusive and rights-based approaches to sexual and reproductive health. [+]

Course Studies in Netherlands 2017. An in-depth look at important issues and current debates in sexual reproductive health policy, including HIV and AIDS, towards more inclusive and rights-based approaches to sexual and reproductive health. This course is tropEd accredited and is intended for public health professionals looking to elevate their capabilities in sexual and reproductive health. It can be followed as a stand-alone course or as part of the Master in International Health or Master in Public Health programmes. Content Sexual and reproductive health includes a range of issues that affect the health of women and men at all stages in their lives. Driven by women’s and human rights movements, there has been a shift in the international arena from primarily focusing on population control and safe motherhood towards more inclusive and rights-based approaches to sexual and reproductive health. In addition to maternal and neonatal, health, family planning and other aspects of reproductive health, sexual health is key. Both HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) have a dramatic impact on the social and economic circumstances of both individuals and societies. Improvements in sexual and reproductive health require more than a biomedical response; effective responses focus to gender roles, identities, social norms, values and address deep taboos. These factors all contribute substantially to the type of interventions that health managers and professionals need to provide. The module explores the causes, consequences and patterns of across a range of SRH issues: sexual health, family planning, infertility , antenatal, perinatal, postpartum health,... [-]

Disease control refers to a broad package of strategies for controlling diseases, from primary prevention, health promotion, and health legislation to screening for early detection, treatment and rehabilitation. This course is designed to help disease control officers retain the strength of their programmes while moving towards more integrated and sector-wide approaches. This course is TropEd accredited and can be followed as a stand-alone course or as part of the Master in International Health or the Master in Public Health programmes.

In this module a number of diseases, both communicable and non-communicable (NCD), are used as models to demonstrate different aspects and principles of disease control. A wide variety of issues relevant to public health are discussed, such as malaria, tuberculosis, nutrition, smoking, as well as refugee health care. Part of this module is carried out through interactive learning in a Virtual Learning Environment. Objectives At the end of the module students will be able to: appraise and interpret research results on the epidemiology of communicable diseases (CDs) and non-communicable diseases (NCDs) and describe how they can inform relevant decision-making processes about control strategies analyse and critically discuss different approaches and strategies used in disease control and formulate context-appropriate strategies to control one or more CDs and/or NCDs compare and...

Postgraduate of Energy and Climate

University of Antwerp
Campus Part time September 2017 Netherlands Tilburg

Global climate change is mainly caused by emissions arising from our daily energy use. "Think globally, act locally" is necessary to trigger urgent and drastic changes. Energy use and solutions are local, but markets and technologies are global. [+]

Global climate change is mainly caused by emissions arising from our daily energy use. “Think globally, act locally” is necessary to trigger urgent and drastic changes. Energy use and solutions are local, but markets and technologies are global. Finding feasible pathways to transform energy systems poses huge challenges for all of us. - On the one hand, drastic change requires fresh ideas, new ways of approaching problems and the discovery of unexplored paths. - On the other hand the solid laws of physics and eternal endeavours of human beings constrain freedom of action. The Postgraduate of Energy and Climate is innovative. The lectures focus on energy for the future: energy efficiency and renewable energy are studied from the energy end-use and services perspective. But the future is also uncertain: debated policy topics are covered by two lecturers, diverging in analysis and proposed solutions. The programme furthermore focuses on our common future: it invites a broad audience, from non-technical scholars to certified engineers, who are all eager to learn about new perspectives and approaches for addressing energy and climate 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.... [-]
