Online Postgraduate Opportunity in Global Health and Infectious Disease
Global health has become a global priority. Infectious diseases are a major global concern and one that particularly imparts on developing nations. While safe and effective interventions exist many of those most in need lack access to appropriate health care, resulting in 11 million deaths per year and many more lives affected by reduced productivity and missed educational opportunities.
The Global Campaign for the Health Millennium Development Goals, the Global Health Strategy and the international Health partnership affirm political will and commitment to improving health. Part of the response to the changing international landscape for international development has been enhanced demand for an investment in support of research, innovation and capacity building for development. Here, at the University of Edinburgh Global Health Academy, we believe in working together to support the creation, dissemination and the translation of global health knowledge across a global community of health practitioners, trainers, researchers and policy makers.
This programme aims address the challenges posed by infectious diseases in the 21st Century. The portfolio of courses is structured to fit around your working lives, in a manner that will renew and strengthening your scientific knowledge and development. Training will also be offered in surveillance, prevention and control of infectious diseases and evaluating their impact on public health.
