Improving global health in the long term requires a deep appreciation of the impact of environmental issues at local, national and global scales. This course focuses on three key public health threats that require complex multidisciplinary solutions: climate change, poor sanitation and water security, and nuclear weapons. Participants of this course will explore these interrelated planetary challenges, their profound implications for population health, and the demand for high level integrated problem solving in the coming decades.
The course runs over five days, 22 to 26 July.
This course is aimed at students and early-mid career professionals with a general interest or experience in global/public health and/or international development and a specific interest in environmental issues. No prior knowledge is required.
