Case Studies in Primary Health Care

This course introduces students to the origins, concepts, and development of community-based primary health care through case studies from both developing and developed countries. As in clinical bedside teaching, we use real cases to help students develop problem-solving skills in practical situations. We also discuss participatory approaches in the organization and management of health services and other factors such as equity, socio-cultural change, environmental protection, and the process of community empowerment.

"I have a degree in pharmacy, and next year I'll begin a Master's in pharmacology with emphasis on health economics. I have studied the influence on public health and access to essential medicines due to the signing of FTA with U.S. I also belong to an NGO that studies health policy and research group that aims for the rational use of medicines."
