TOP REVIEWS FROM AN INTRODUCTION TO GLOBAL HEALTH
This course has covered a wide range of global health topics in an understandable form. I am very satisfied by completing the course but of course with loads of thoughts on the varied issues.
Great material taught by such experienced professors and professionals in the area. Wonderful to increase your knowledge in this field, an area where there still so much to be done!
A very informational course. Gives a good overview of the concept. Only if they add recent developments and updates on infectious diseases like Zika and Ebola, it would be great.
The best online course ever. Very interesting, engaging and insightful if you have no previous knowledge on Global Health. It allows you to learn about very different topics.
