Public Health in Cuba 2015 | GHSD 6160
Havana | May 23 – June 6, 2015 | 3 credit graduate course
THIS PROGRAM IS FOR GRADUATE STUDENTS ONLY
APPLICATIONS AVAILABLE NOW! See below for details
The School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine at Tulane University offers a graduate summer study abroad program in Cuba in 2015. This two-week course addresses how the Cuban government has prioritized the development of universal health care, with a special emphasis on the efforts to strengthen primary health care and to articulate it with more complex levels of care. The course contextualizes and analyzes the programs to prevent infant mortality and to prevent and control infectious diseases such as polio, malaria, tuberculosis, dengue, and HIV, as well as the economic and political context in which these public health initiatives developed. The three-credit course takes place in collaboration with the National School of Public Health in Havana. Course activities take place in Havana and in rural areas.
a) Analyze the development of the Cuban health system within its economic and political context.
b) Analyze the efforts of the Cuban health system in reaching universal health coverage.
c) Identify the achievements of the Cuban health system in maternal and child health and in the elimination and control of infectious diseases.
Students stay in the National School of Public Health (ENSP) residence, which is located in Havana, with the possibility of staying in a rural area during the second week. The program includes ten days of lectures and visits to health facilities in Havana and in rural areas.
The cost of the 2015 program will depend on the number of students enrolled* and includes shared room and three meals a day at the ENSP, medical insurance, airfare to/from Havana from Tampa, OFAC-licensed academic visa, specialized tours and outings, and farewell dinner. Airfare to/from Tampa, one-night stay in hotel in Tampa, incidental costs, and extra meals and expenses are not included in the program cost.
PROGRAM ELIGIBILITY & APPLICATIONS:
Graduate students interested in applying must be in good academic standing and have at least a current cumulative grade point average of 2.5. Fluency in Spanish is an asset. Non-Tulane students are also welcome to apply to this program but should confirm with their home university that their credits will transfer.

Dr. Arachu Castro, Samuel Z. Stone Chair of Public Health in Latin America, Department of Global Health Systems and Development, Tulane School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine.
Please note: Due to current regulations, the United States Office of Foreign Assets Control only approves student travel to Cuba if students are (1) registered in a degree-seeking program and (2) the credits earned in Cuba count towards that degree. (i.e. You must be a current university student who will not have graduated on or before May/June 2015 to apply to this program. That does not include high school students, staff, or faculty from outside institutions; no exceptions. This program only accepts graduate students at this time.)

A Lecture by Michael Shifter: "Shift in U.S.-Cuba Policy: Implications for Hemispheric Relations."
RSVP required for lecture and luncheon.
Please join us for a lecture by Michael Shifter, President of the Inter-American Dialogue, the premier think-tank on Western Hemisphere affairs in Washington, D.C.
The announcement, last December 17th, that the United States would move towards normalization of its diplomatic relations with Cuba, generated questions about the move's potential impact. Some observers have interpreted the move as a harbinger of better times for ordinary Cubans, while others have expressed doubts about its potential for improving human rights and political freedoms. All agree, however, that the shift in policy is historic, and that it is bound to have profound implications for hemispheric relations. As a long-time observer of inter-American affairs, Michael Shifter is in a privileged position to assess those implications, and the likely scenarios in which they might unfold.
Michael Shifter is president of the Inter-American Dialogue, a Washington-based forum on Western Hemisphere affairs. Since 1993, Mr. Shifter has been adjunct professor at Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service, where he teaches Latin American politics. Mr. Shifter writes and talks widely on U.S.-Latin American relations and hemispheric affairs. His recent articles have appeared in major U.S. and Latin American publications such as The New York Times, Foreign Affairs, Foreign Policy, The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, Journal of Democracy, Harvard International Review, Clarin, O Estado de S. Paulo, and Cambio, and he is co-editor, along with Jorge Domínguez, of Constructing Democratic Governance in Latin America, published by Johns Hopkins University Press. He is also a contributing editor to Current History. Since 1996, he has frequently testified before Congress about U.S. policy towards Latin America. Prior to joining the Inter-American Dialogue, Mr. Shifter directed the Latin American and Caribbean program at the National Endowment for Democracy and, before that, the Ford Foundation's governance and human rights program in the Andean region and Southern Cone where he was based in Lima, Peru, and subsequently, in Santiago, Chile.
