Jointly offered by Partners In Health and the University of Global Health Equity, this four-day online course presents a practical orientation to pandemic preparedness and response by public and global health leaders, implementers, and policymakers.

This unique opportunity to learn from experts leading national and global efforts to address COVID-19 and other pandemics will train participants to analyze and explain challenges of pandemic preparedness and response through a practical, interdisciplinary and equity-driven approach.

Course Overview

Case studies on the response to COVID-19 in the U.S (the Navajo Nation; Newark, New Jersey; and Massachusetts), and in Rwanda will be analyzed to illustrate principles and frameworks for the design of effective interventions to emerging pandemics.

Participants will be assigned pre-readings and videos to watch prior to each session. During the online session there will be a lecture that elaborates on key themes, followed by a presentation of the Case Study, and an open discussion among presenters and participants. Participants are welcome to attend any sub-set of sessions. Participants who complete all four session will be awarded a certificate. The content will subsequently be available for online self-learning.

At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the evolution of COVID-19 and other pandemics and epidemics and role of the leadership, policy makers and implementers in effective systems readiness.
  • Evaluate essential practices to address domestic and global epidemics and pandemics. Be able to assess, critique and improve the existing tools and resources for effective implementation of COVID-19 response.
