thetize and critically review selected topics. The emphasis is put on practical knowledge by making extensive use of agency reports such OECD monitoring reports, development effectiveness reports and corporate results reports, actual project documents, etc. Course delivered in 6 weeks (4 hours per week) over the semester Course Description : The ﬁrst part of the course is dedicated to the aid architecture, its evolution and the global development effectiveness agenda. It includes a review of the high level fora on aid effectiveness (Rome, Paris, Accra, Busan and Mexico) and investigates how the ﬁve principles of the Paris declaration (alignment, ownership, results, harmonization, mutual accountability) contributed to change the development ﬁnance landscape. The second part of the course covers the practical aspects and implications of the development effectiveness agenda. It illustrates how the imperative to demonstrate and communicate “results” and “effectiveness” shaped policies and practices of aid agencies in the recent period. Metrics and tools used to assess effectiveness are considered both at the project level and at the organizational level. The course adopts a practitioner's perspective, combining conceptual underpinning with practical knowledge. Materials essentially include reports, methodological tools and other instruments in use by development agencies. Required reading : SDGs/ UN resolution of 25 September 2015 (http://www.un.org/ga/search/ view_doc.asp ?symbol=A/RES/70/1&Lang=E) ; Paris declaration on Aid Effectiveness and Harmonization (http://www.oecd.org/dac/effectiveness/34428351.pdf) ; Busan Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation (http://www. oecd.org/development/effectiveness/49650173. pdf).
miques d'Aix-en-Provence), Mead OVER (Enseignant Chercheur), Marion PACLOT (Consultante). Prerequisite : Some acquaintance with using formulas in Excel required, experience with Stata highly recommended but not required. Courses will be taught in English and French Pedagogical format : Seminar Course validation : With respect to a single selected African country, students will write a paper applying course concepts and methods to describe the sources of health ﬁnancing in the country by source and health objective and to analyze its alignment with 2030 sustainable development goals. Using a provided Stata package, the student will project the future ﬁscal burden of AIDS treatment and propose how the country and its donors might structure spending to : i) approach universal health coverage ; ii) achieve an “AIDS transition” ; and iii) protect against future possible outbreaks of Ebola or other dangerous infectious diseases. Workload : In addition to the professors' class presentations, students will read papers that apply the methods discussed in class to African health problems and are useful references for their papers. Approximately 3 hours per week. A teaching assistant will help students to use Stata (optional supplementary workshops, schedule to be discussed with students). Course Description : First AIDS and now Ebola have shocked the international policy community into a realization that communicable diseases remain a menacing threat not just to the poorest countries, but to the entire world. But expenditures to address this threat must still compete with expenditures on other worthy objectives (including Universal Health Coverage), both in the poor countries and in the middle and high-income donor countries. In this course students will learn to apply the principles of economic analysis to health sector planning in African countries. On completion, students will be familiar with methods for analyzing disease burden, economic impact of disease, national health accounts, costeffectiveness of alternative health strategies and will have been introduced to mathematical epidemiology using Excel and Stata. Objective of the course : Students will become familiar with methods for analyzing disease bur-
