Course description

This course aims to provide students with knowledge and critical understanding of the principles and processes of designing and monitoring a disease control programme for a low or middle-income country. In most low and middle-income countries, communicable diseases (e.g. TB, malaria, HIV/AIDS) continue to be a major cause of human suffering and preventable death and these countries are also experiencing an increasing burden of non-communicable diseases (e.g. diarrhoeal disease). Interventions to control those diseases are well described and proven to be effective, but they are often not widely applied due to lack of resources, political commitment or health systems issues. You will learn how to take account of changing epidemiological and demographic profiles, become familiar with the latest recommended interventions to control the diseases in question, and consider effective mechanisms to implement the interventions.
