Disease control refers to a broad package of strategies for controlling diseases, from primary prevention, health promotion, and health legislation to screening for early detection, treatment, and rehabilitation. This course is designed to help disease control officers retain the strength of their programmes while moving towards more integrated and sector-wide approaches.

This course is TropEd accredited and can be followed as a stand-alone course or as part of the Master in International Health or the Master in Public Health programmes.

In order to choose the right strategies for a specific disease in a given situation, healthcare managers need to understand the context in which a disease arises, the factors contributing to its spread, and the natural course of the disease.

In this module, a number of diseases, both communicable and non-communicable (NCD), are used as models to demonstrate different aspects and principles of disease control. A wide variety of issues relevant to public health are discussed, such as malaria, tuberculosis, nutrition, smoking, as well as refugee health care. Part of this module is carried out through interactive learning in a Virtual Learning Environment.
