Free online course on Global Health and Disability for Health Workers by katty : February 09, 2018, 09:44:19 AM
Course hosted by London School of Hygiene

Dear all,

I hope that you are well.

We are super-excited as we are just putting the final touches on our online course on Global Health and Disability. It features key global leaders in disability and many testimonials and videos from people with disabilities from around the world. It argues strongly for the inclusion of people with disabilities in development.

I would be very grateful if you would share the information below with colleagues or others who may be interested in joining the course. It is suited to anyone with an interest in health and disability, from low or high income settings, and should take up about 2-3 hours per week for 3 weeks. The launch is Feb 26. Let me know if you have any questions.

All the best,
Hannah

Why join the course: 

Around 15% of the world’s population, or 1 billion people, live with some form of disability, with numbers continuing to rise over the coming decades.

People with disabilities are often overlooked in national and international development, and can face widespread barriers in accessing services, including health and rehabilitation services, even though simple initiatives are available to enable access. Our three week course aims to raise awareness about the importance of health and well-being of people with disabilities in the context of the global development agenda: Leaving no one behind.

What topics will you cover?
• The magnitude of disability and relevance of disability to the global development agenda
• Defining disability and how it can be understood and measured
• The challenges to health and wellbeing amongst people with disabilities and why people with disabilities might have poorer health
• Why people with disabilities may have difficulty in accessing health services
• Links among longer term health conditions and disability
• How to improve access to health care and rehabilitation for people with disabilities
• Community based inclusive development for improving access to health and rehabilitation for people with disabilities
