Program Description:
Public Health
With its publicly financed, universal healthcare system, Denmark serves as a unique case study of the challenges and opportunities in public health issues.

In Denmark and across Europe, healthcare systems are facing rising costs, aging populations and inequality in health. Analyze and debate these challenges, while examining their interplay with the organization, financing and priority-setting of the various systems you encounter in class and on Study Tours. With its renowned system of extensive register-based population information, Denmark is a unique case study of how tracking health-related parameters over time can inform policy and decision-makers about important public health issues.
