Health Research and Interventions (CAS HRI)

The Certificate of Advanced Studies in “Health Research and Interventions” (CAS HRI) provides international participants with the competencies to collect, analyse, and evaluate qualitative and quantitative data relevant to improving health and healthcare in low- and middle-income societies (Module A: Concepts and Health Research). Participants also acquire the skills and knowledge to identify and analyse the interrelated determinants of health and the main health problems of populations in low- and middle-income societies across disciplines (Module B: Health Challenges and Responses).

With a focus on practical application and interactive training, participants of the CAS HRI benefit from engaging with experts from various fields and with the international and diverse student body participating in the full-time Diploma of Advanced Studies in “Health Care and Management: From Research to Implementation” (DAS HCM) course.

The CAS HRI can be completed in a modular way over one or two years. Starting with Module A is recommended but not mandatory.
