Course Access: Lifetime
Course Overview

Free course for self paced study. Earn a certificate. The course builds on the course Public Health – the basics to provide examples of the practice of Public Health in understanding the burden, causes and interventions to control diseases, and how to evaluate Public Health interventions. The first section identifies the burden of illness, causes and the evidence base and policy options for interventions to reduce the population burden of illness. Crucial in the development of effective interventions is their evaluation – hence the second part of this course.
