John Hopkins School of Public Health: Urban Health in Developing Countries

The Johns Hopkins' Bloomberg School of Public Health offers this free online course on Urban Health in Developing Countries. Taught by Abdullah Baqui and William Brieger, two senior professors in the Department of International Health, this course addresses "urban demography, epidemiology, changes in urban physical and social environment and their consequences for health, nutritional issues, the inadequacy of conventional health services, and the design and implementation of a coordinated and cost-effective health care system." Here, readers will find all lecture slides, readings, and assignments used to teach this course in Spring of 2009. There are also a number of recorded lectures from a handful of guest speakers and links to related resources. This online course is a valuable resource for anyone seeking to better understand issues relating to urbanization, geography, globalization, and public health.
