The coordinators of disciplines and education at distance staff met on Tuesday, February 3rd, to detail the new educational initiative of Nethis/Fiocruz, the course “International Development Cooperation: Specificities of the health area”. The prediction is that it will be available to the public in the second half of 2015, with the support of the Fiocruz School of Government.
The course will be of 80 hours, in education at distance mode, with following agenda: health, environment and development in the context of the international relations; International cooperation in health; Paradoxes of international cooperation in health; Management of policies and projects of international cooperation in health. In addition, the participants will develop integration exercises of such content in the preparation of analyses on concrete situations of their professional experiences.
The project is part of the activities of the Cooperation Term (TC 41) between the Pan American Health Organization (Paho) and the Oswaldo Cruz Foundation (Fiocruz). TC 41, with its ending scheduled for December 2015, supported many initiatives of Fiocruz in the last ten years, under the overall coordination of the Center for International Relations in Health (Cris/Fiocruz).
“It is important to note in which context that the EaD (E-learning) project is inserted, highlighting the importance of TC 41 for the institutional development of the international cooperation within the framework of Fiocruz, including the creation of Nethis,” says the Coordinator of the Center, José Paranaguá de Santana.
