Globally, non communicable diseases account for over two thirds of all deaths, and over half of disability adjusted life years. In this course, participants will gain a practical understanding of the epidemiology, determinants, consequences and global health responses to the non communicable disease epidemic. The course promotes participant's exploration of the nexus between non communicable diseases and disability, non communicable diseases and infectious diseases, and non communicable diseases within the broader public health and global development agenda.
The course runs over five days, 20-21 and 24-26 June.
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 non communicable disease. No prior knowledge is required.
