SIT Study Abroad India: Public Health, Gender, and Community Action

NOTE: SIT will make every effort to maintain its programs as described. To respond to emergent situations, like COVID-19, SIT may have to modify programs.

Understand the pioneering links between public health, gender, and community action in India and Thailand.

WHY STUDY HEALTH IN INDIA?

India, the most populous democracy on Earth, is also home to a 5,000-year-old indigenous medicine system. From your base in New Delhi, the nation’s capital and hub for policymakers and global health organizations, explore both ancient and cutting-edge approaches to local and international public health. Travel to under-resourced communities to conduct extensive fieldwork; gain an understanding of inclusion and access to healthcare; examine policy advocacy for the right to health services; and participate in a special focus on reproductive and children’s health. In prepping for a weeklong workshop with a community health organization, study relevant public health programs in India and Thailand and learn how the dynamics of gender and community affect public-health access in a field-study context. With New Delhi hosting more than 300 international and 1,000 local non-governmental organizations actively involved in public health and development, this program offers an ideal opportunity to build contacts, network, and collaborate with a diverse range of public health agencies and experts.

Please visit the SIT Study Abroad website for details on the program highlights and details of coursework, educational excursions, and housing.
