The Global Health Network, an Internet "global training programme in public health," directed by Ronald E. LaPorte of the Graduate School of Public Health at the University of Pittsburg, and Shunichi Akazawa of the World Health Organization, among others, has recently released this new online Epidemiology course. The course consists of seventeen annotated slide based lectures at this time, including Disease Monitoring, An Introduction to Health Economics, Malaria, and Nutrition and Global Health, among others. Lectures contain between fifteen and 50 slides, and are accompanied by varying numbers of hypertext connections to relevant sites and documents. The first lecture has been peer reviewed and is available in eight languages. The remaining lectures (English only) are accompanied by calls for comments. Each lecture is also available in PowerPoint format, so that the content, if not the hyperlinks, can be used without an Internet connection.
