Global Public Health Sciences in the 21st Century

The field of Global/Public Health and Health Sciences is advancing rapidly in the 21st century.


Due to rapid globalization, compounded by socio-economic gaps between so-called rich and poor countries, there is almost no justification for ensuring sustainable quality of life other than combining coherent multi-disciplinary systems in health sciences (including but not limited to governance, technology, law, policies, informatics, e-health, and human rights, and public health). At Flowers School of Global Health Sciences we are committed to providing high quality education health sciences in order to bridge the knowledge and expertise gap between advanced and resource poor communities.


As learners, you will be challenged to think, analyze and engage in critical debates on contemporary issues in health and technology globally. The complexity of these interactions couple with institutional and state’s responsibility to promote right and access to health, will stimulate critical thoughts and innovative ideas for change in classroom setting. Such carefully designed courses will attract students in law, medicine, public health, interdisciplinary studies, international development and more.

Global Public Health

General interest in global public health is evolving rapidly as emerging issues spring out everyday. Public health problems are intensified in resource poor countries where citizens are generally excluded and/or have limited access to social services. What are the challenging topics of concerns for people working in international public health? Who should take the lead in addressing current issues in public health? This course aims to help students acquire knowledge and skills in identifying emerging public health issues, and also examining, synthesizing and analyzing information, research findings and international reports on at least ten current topics. A brief synopsis on world health issues will be presented with reference to several international declarations as it relates to global health challenges.
