Self Paced 8 Weeks Digital Badge $990


Course Overview

This course examines how global health experts bridge the gap between the best practices of global health research and the real-world intricacies of global health practice. In this course, we will identify the strategies utilized for global health surveillance, monitoring, and research. Learners will become familiar with some of the common ways global health data is disseminated, and how evidence-based practices can be translated into the basis for effective policy. Learners will explore how this cycle is iterated at a global scale, especially in times of global health crises or disaster response. Throughout, we will share examples of how health professionals can engage with this process at multiple levels.

What topics will be covered

  • Identify ways in which ethics and evidence contribute to global health practice and policy
  • Distinguish between global health practice and global health policys
  • Articulate applications in global health and ways in which research informs policy, policy informs practice, and practice informs outcomes
  • Synthesize ways in which economics, politics, health statistics impel or constrain practice and policy
  • Integrate applications in global health within your profession or field of study
