26 - 31 August 2019: SSPH+ Lugano Summer School in Public Health Policy, Economics and Management 2019
At the Lugano Summer School public health professionals, researchers and graduate students have the possibility to learn together through mutual exchange, in a stimulating and beautiful environment. The Lugano Summer School places health, disease, and health systems thinking under one common framework of coherent concepts and practical implications. The focus on public health policy, economics and management combined with the diversity of students, facilitators, guest speakers and professors from all over the world, has provided for a rich learning environment for over two decades reaching the 28th edition this year. The education obtained and the networks created serve as an opportunity to reduce and prevent the gap between public health theory and practice.
The Lugano Summer School is jointly organized by SSPH+, the Institute of Economics (IdEP) at USI Lugano, and the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute (Swiss TPH) in Basel.
The support of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) is key, enabling professionals from Eastern Europe, Africa, and other emerging and transition economies to participate and share their knowledge and skills required to manage health systems and health service.
As an important innovation, this edition of the Lugano Summer School will be the 1st ever to offer 3 courses dedicated to social marketing. In addition to the existing curriculum of public health courses, the European Social Marketing Association (ESMA) will lead one 6-day course and two 3-day courses designed for practitioners, researchers, graduate students, and policy influencers.
These courses are open to all students, regardless of their level of familiarity with social marketing.
