Repository of Open Education Resources in Public Health

As part of our undertaking to share our resources and expertise and to build the network for public health education in Africa and the global South, we have been part of collaborations whose collective aim is growing the Open Education Resources movement – which aims to make education resources freely available on the web. Our efforts in this regard have been strengthened by our participation in collaborative networks like OER Healtha WHO Masters Program focusing on Health Workforce Developmentthe Consortium for Health Policy and Systems Analysis in Africa (CHEPSAA), and OER Africa.

As part of these collaborations, we lodged as Open Education Resources several of our distance learning modules and case studies as OER resources, which we have been developing since 2000 for the Master of Public Health, Postgraduate Diploma and Postgraduate Certificate in Public Health. Each module is delivered face to face and as a text-based module, with accompanying readings, prescribed readings, and some multimedia learning objects. Only the Module Guides are availabile here. This is a space to make our resources available to our students and other interested institutions and individuals.
