Data-Driven Prevention Policy in Public Health

Ready for the public health challenges of the future? Interested how this differs between health systems across countries? Do you want to learn the value of real-world data for public health policy during hands on research sessions? Then do not hesitate and apply for this unique interdisciplinary summer school in public health!

Health systems around the world are each finding their own way to deal with the public health challenges of the future. Remarkably, the systems for prevention, health and chronic care that have been implemented show wide variation in actual services provided as well as cost incurred. These differences might partly explain the differences in burden of disease observed as well as variation in longevity.

In this summer school researchers in public health from all over the world will enhance their expertise on comparative health system analysis. In particular, we deal with the organisational challenges provided by the stronger shift toward prevention in combating chronic diseases and view alternative options for reducing health inequalities. All modes of comparative analysis will be data-driven. The programme will be adjusted to your level in statistics, so students from all statistical backgrounds are welcome!

The summer school is taught by experts of the Aletta Jacobs School of Public Health based in Groningen, and combines lectures with active learning modules that bring the learned theory into practice. To this end, we encourage students to present their own work during peer-topeer review sessions and we provide hands-on research sessions.
