Communicable Diseases and Quality Assured Programs CAS

Strategies for Controlling Transmission Dynamics in Dense Populations are needed. History can provide information about the devastating urban enpidemics such as Plague, Cholera or Influenza which diminished our city populations over centuries.

Are you aware of the newly emerging epidemic diseases such as Dengue, Chikungunya, Zika, Swineflu as well as the continuing threat of Cholera and diarrheal dieseases particularly in the cities of warm-climate countries? What is an adequate public health response in view of of the enormous transmission dynamics of communicable diseases in overcrowded living conditions?

For effective results it is important to set up cost-effective preventive programs and to monitor and evaluate the process and outcome. In this five-week program on Communicable Diseases and Quality Assured Programs participants will learn how to deal with such major health threats. It consists in training professionals to use interdisciplinary approaches to explore planning and management issues in urban health with a special focus on communicable diseases. The globally experienced and interdisciplinary teaching staff brings expertise from public health, international relations, disease control, water and sanitation, and has experienced in health policy formulation, implementation, evaluation, and health systems research.
