Program Overview

Program Description:
This course aims to bridge the disciplines of epidemiology, laboratory sciences and public health and policy for training and retraining of students who wish to work directly on a multidisciplinary practical approach to the control of infectious diseases, and to equip students with specialised skills that will facilitate a career in the control of infectious diseases as staff of health ministries, health departments, national or international disease control agencies, aid organisations or universities.

At the end of this course students should be able to: investigate the transmission of endemic and epidemic infections; select appropriate methods of control; design, implement and evaluate co-ordinated control methods; assess constraints of local public health delivery systems; manage available resources in the context of the control of infectious diseases, and focus their efforts on particular geographical regions or specific diseases.
