Global Health Sciences


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.
