This subject focuses on the vital role of evidence in designing and implementing health programs within a global context. Students will explore various theories and approaches to program design, including Theory of Change, program logic models, complexity theory, behavior change theories, and participatory approaches. Guided by experienced practitioners, students will engage in practical exercises to develop strategic program plans based on case studies. They will also consider cross-cutting issues such as participation and inclusion, as well as real-world constraints in program planning. The subject equips students with the skills to create work plans, budgets, risk assessments, risk management plans, and contracts. The subject follows a dual delivery block mode, with self-directed online modules over two weeks, followed by live interactive sessions, allowing for flexibility in study timing. Students are expected to commit approximately 40 hours per week to learning, including reading, group work, and live sessions, culminating in a major assessment completed over six weeks.
