Barcelona Global Health Summer School 2014 Health by System: The Role of Health Systems and the Path to Universal Health Coverage
13-18 July 2014 路 Barcelona
At the international level, the discourse on Universal Health Coverage is gaining traction while, at the same time, the global financial crisis has caused a reduction in access to health in some areas. It is crucial that students and young professionals studying and working in health-related fields understand the evolution of health systems, the goals and challenges presented by Universal Health Coverage, and how they can work for equitable access to health.
The 2014 Barcelona Summer School aims to provide a fundamental understanding of health systems in the context of the goal of Universal Health Coverage, as well as special topics of interest to students and young professionals in the fields of health sciences, social sciences, political science, law or economics. Faculty for the course are drawn from public, international and global health academic programmes and research institutions in Spain and Europe, including the Barcelona Institute for Global Health.
