Global Public Health


Course Information

General interest in global public health is evolving rapidly as emerging issues spring out everyday. Public health problems are intensified in resource poor countries where citizens are generally excluded and/or have limited access to social services. What are the challenging topics of concerns for people working in international public health? Who should take the lead in addressing current issues in public health? This course aims to help students acquire knowledge and skills in identifying emerging public health issues, and also examining, synthesizing and analyzing information, research findings and international reports on at least ten current topics. A brief synopsis on world health issues will be presented with reference to several international declarations as it relates to global health challenges.
