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 just withdrew my MPH admission after finding out just how much I may end up owing after graduating. I have been fascinated with public health for so many years. I have a Ph.D. in health communication and see so many connections to Public Health. I want to expand my communication perspectives by enhancing my Public Health knowledge and hopefully find a career path where I can use both. Thanks for providing your syllabi I devour your readings at my leisure and will share with my students too. "
