Global Health Frameworks
PubH 6400, 2 credits
This course provides an overview of current issues in global public health with particular emphasis on low- and middle-income countries. The course is designed to be both a first course for students entering the field of global health, as well as an update on current technical and policy issues for advanced students who may have considerable experience. While taking this course, you may identify specific topics in which you want to gain more knowledge and skills in courses offered later in the year on core areas of global health such as health sector reform; organization and management of health systems; community health and primary health care; humanitarian assistance and refugee health; international nutrition; vaccine development and policy; disease prevention and control; and social and behavioral interventions.
