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 want to communicate my overwhelming gratitude for providing these materials free to the public. I am currently a Masters of Public Health student with an interest in the psychosocial aspects of public health. Knowing that Johns Hopkins University is one of the leading institutions in the nation for public health education, I was interested to see what types of classes were offered in the areas of behavioral health. Just for fun :). When I saw the courses, I found them to be extremely interesting. And then I ran into the link that connected me to OCW. I literally couldn't believe what I was seeing. A premier academic institution offering lecture slides, videos, syllabi, and reading list for free? I think this really speaks to your deep commitment to education for everyone. I am excited to begin to read through the information. This will be a great supplement to my current studies. And will ultimately help shape me into a better public health professional, committed to building the health of Americans and combating health disparities. Thank you for your academic excellence and your social consciousness."
