Essentials of Global Health

Essentials of Global Health is a comprehensive introduction to global health. Particular attention will be paid throughout the course to health systems issues, the linkages between health and development, and health.

This course is taught in English and it is entirely free to take but there is an available optional certificate at the end of the course which may cost some money to get if you need a certificate at the end of the course.

EGH is meant to introduce you to the topic of global health in a well-structured, clear, and easy-to-understand way. Much of the course will focus on five questions: What do people get sick, disabled, and die from; Why do they suffer from these conditions? Which people are most affected? Why should we care about such concerns? What can be done to address key health issues, hopefully at least cost, as fast as possible, and in sustainable ways?
