Non Communicable Diseases for Public Health.
Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are a major global health concern, responsible for 7 out of every 10 deaths worldwide, with a disproportionate impact on low- and middle-income countries, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa.
The Non-Communicable Diseases for Public Health Course aims to increase awareness and understanding of NCDs among individuals, community health workers, teachers, students, and parents. The course is designed to be accessible and easy to understand, with 9 modules presented in simple language and incorporating videos, images, and audio to enhance learning.
The course is intended to empower learners with the knowledge and skills to prevent and control NCDs in their daily lives. It includes additional course content and research papers to provide a deeper understanding of the topic.
By taking this course, learners will be better informed, have fun while learning, and be encouraged to share their knowledge with others. With NCDs being a leading cause of death worldwide, it is more important than ever to have access to accurate and relevant information.
This course is designed to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of non-communicable diseases (NCDs), including the causes, prevention, and management of these conditions. Additionally, students will explore contemporary issues related to NCDs, such as the impact of antimicrobial resistance, human rights, and climate change. Through the course, students will gain a deeper understanding of NCDs data and learn from real-world examples of global efforts in the field. By the end of the course, students will have a comprehensive understanding of NCDs and be equipped with the knowledge and skills to address these issues in their future careers.
