Bangkok, THAILAND: Health & Development Interventions: New Approaches
May 19 - 30, 2014
Instructors: William Bertrand and Elke de Buhr
Thailand has seen major improvements in all sectors of health and development in the last few decades. Life expectancy increased to approximately 70 years at birth, the vast majority of the population now has access to safe drinking water and sanitation, and a system providing universal health care for Thai nationals was introduced in 2002. Yet, serious challenges remain, including the management of HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria and other infectious diseases. The purpose of this course is to provide students with knowledge and skills in the basic concepts, principles and methodologies of monitoring and evaluating health and development interventions. As part of the coursework, we will study established and new approaches to M&E at the case of the comprehensive and successful HIV/AIDS response in Thailand as well as other examples from the local context. At the end of the course, you will be able to assess the ability of a specific evaluation method or combination of methods to measure both the process and impact of an intervention and to design and execute an evaluation project with assistance. Participants in the program will complete practical data collection exercises and learn through field visits, guest speakers and involvement with local public health personnel and Thai government officials. This will include visits to international organizations and local and international NGOs working on health and development in Thailand. - See more at: http://payson.tulane.edu/summerinst/health-development-interventions-new-approaches

Bangkok, THAILAND: Complex Emergencies, Refugees and Migrants
June 2-13, 2014
Instructors: William Bertrand and Elke de Buhr
This course will examine migration, including forced migration, in Thailand and the broader Southeast Asian region. Based on data provided by UNHCR, Thailand is hosting 84,900 registered refugees as well as an estimated 62,000 unregistered asylum-seekers from Myanmar in nine camps along the Thai-Myanmar border. In total, two million unregistered migrants are estimated to be living in Thailand, many of them in Bangkok, and 500,000 people, often the children of immigrants, are regarded as without a nationality, or stateless. After an introduction to migration in South-East Asia, students will be introduced to the Sphere Project. They will apply the studied approaches to a group project examining the needs of refugees and migrants, and strategies to address them. Visits to international organizations (including UNHCR and/or IOM) and local and international NGOs involved in supporting migrant populations in Thailand and the international context will supplement the coursework. - See more at: http://payson.tulane.edu/summerinst/complex-emergencies-refugees-and-migrants
