Netherlands course in Tropical Medicine and Hygiene

KIT-Health-HeaderStart: 7th March 2016, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

The Netherlands Course in Tropical Medicine and Hygiene or Nederlandse tropen cursus (NTC) provides essential preparation for medical doctors, nurses, midwives and other health professionals who intend to work in low- and middle-income countries or societies. Participants may be preparing to work in a district hospital at the first level of referral, or intend to participate in health care projects with non-governmental organisations (NGOs).

Many healthcare professionals want to contribute to health in low and middle income countries. In order to make a meaningful and appropriate contribution meaningful knowledge of the context and of local health problems is vital.

By following the NTC, you will be able to:
– identify and analyse interrelated determinants of health and major health problems of populations
in low and middle income societies.
– plan sustainable improvements of health systems, taking into account diverse cultural settings
and social and ethical responsibilities
– critically collect, analyse and appraise qualitative and quantitative data relevant to the improvement of health
and health care in low and middle income societies
– clearly communicate and work professionally in a multidisciplinary team
