Global Health Program (2001-2017) aimed to train medical doctors, dentists, veterinarians and students of these disciplines in global public health issues, such as health care delivery systems, infectious and non- infectious diseases epidemiology and health care management. During the program, approximately 400 medical, dental and veterinary students and doctors from Finland, Chile, China, India, Nepal, the Philippines, Malawi, Nigeria, and Tanzania have taken the course. The faculty included approximately 40 senior researchers/professors/lecturers from the Partner countries and 60 European global health experts. Together, the students and faculty now form a network of more than 500 global health minded professionals.
In addition to the certificate courses, seminars and summits, the project also developed open-access e-learning courses on different global health –related topics. These e-learning courses are still open for all health care professionals and people interested in global health.
The e-learning courses are:
- Introduction to Global Health
- Introduction to Social Security and Health Systems
- Migration of Human Health Resources
- Transition in Health
The e-learning courses were developed in co-operation with an international network of public health oriented organizations in Chile (Universidad de Chile), Finland, the Philippines (University of the Philippines), Nepal (Tribhuvan University) and Tanzania (Muhimbili University of Health and Allied Sciences and Sokoine University of Agriculture)
