The Global Health Project

This module covers a period of 3 weeks

Modules to be covered:-

1. Health Systems Didactic session – Two (2) days

This session serves to lay the foundation of healthcare in Kenya using a wholistic approach. We hope to provide students with a global understanding of the Kenyan healthcare status. First we will find out what the student knows, then we will tell them what they need to know and finally have them teach us on what they’ve discovered. Various topics will be covered, the key ones being:-

  • The organization of Healthcare in Kenya
  • Culture and its role in Health
  • Challenges and opportunities for healthcare in Africa (Global Perspective)

2. Organisation exposure/practicum – Two (2) weeks

This two-week period will form the core of the curriculum. It provides the student an opportunity to have the one on one interaction with various healthcare organistaions in the country. The student is expected to compile a report at the end of this period. This opportunity may be used to gather information required for class assignments and may form part of a research project once the necessary regulations are followed.

3. Closure – Two (2) days

The students will be given 2 days to compile their work and on the last Friday of the 3-week session the global health experience will be drawn to a close. We expect students to compile a report on their experience. There will be an award for the most informative report. We encourage students to use this experience as a stepping stone as the scale greater heights in the public health sector.
