Global Health Programme & Course Catalogue

Globalised health education is an area of growing interest, attracting students from many disciplines and fields also outside that of health. In December 2012, the Global Health Working Group under the Platform on Human Health (PHH) carried out a mapping exercise to provide an overview of the Global Health programmes and courses offered in Danish research-based universities.

All the research-based universities in Denmark were contacted. The definition of Global Health programmes and courses was left to the interpretation of each faculty and university.

The responses are presented in a form of a 'Global Health Program and Course Catalogue'. For easy reference, the Catalogue is divided into two parts: Global Health Programmes and Global Health Courses. In addition, Programmes and Courses with Elements of Global Health are presented as a separate section.

Please note that this is the first draft of the 'Catalogue'. If you have any comments or questions, please contact the Global Health Working Group via

The Global Health Programme and Course Catalogue is meant:

  • To aid in the prevention of program and course duplicity;
  • To enable synergy and specialisation;
  • To give greater visibility of Global Health programs and courses available in Danish universities;
  • To enable national and international students to have easy access to Global Health university courses and programs;
  • To promote student exchange; and
  • To enhance cooperation and partnerships between universities.
