Announcement of a course introducing global health

21 January, 2022

The University of Winchester is offering a short online course, An Introduction to Global Health again in 2022. The course identifies the world agenda that will achieve a sustainable planet and good health for all, but notes that this is not inevitable and relies on humans choice.

Comments from those who have completed the course include:

“There is hope, and hopefully the world is waking up to the issues and what needs to be done. Thank you for a very interesting course”

“Setting the focus on what actually improves health rather than just fixing illness makes perfect sense”

“It is clear we have solutions available to us to both achieve better global health and save the planet”

The University is offering 3 course start dates in the early part of this year: 26 January, 16 March and 18 May.

The course is fully self-paced, involves around 10 hours online learning over 4 weeks and the course fee £95. For more information:
