GLID 490 - Engaging Commun. for Health
Engaging Communities for Health introduces students to the core principles, practices, policies, and capabilities that are required to engage communities around all aspects of infectious disease surveillance, control, and response. It moves beyond short-term outbreak dynamics to provide the tools to students to engage in structural, multi-scalar, and social, cultural, economic, and political analysis. By the conclusion of this course, students will have a comprehensive theoretical, methodological, policy, and applied foundation for using community-based strategies for infectious diseases in partnerships with local communities, governments, researchers, and policy makers. Students will demonstrate command over the factors that impact engaging communities for health from a multi-scalar perspective, and will be prepared to advocate, implement, and analyze impactful community engagement action.
