THE GLOBAL PUBLIC HEALTH CURRICULUM: Specific Global Health Competences

  • Ulrich Laaser (editor)

Abstract

The 2nd edition of the Global Public Health Curriculum has been published in the South Eastern European Journal of Public Health, end of 2016 as a special volume (editors Ulrich Laaser & Florida Beluli) at: http://www.seejph.com/index.php/seejph/article/view/106/82. The curriculum targets the postgraduate education and training of public health professionals including their continued professional development (CPD). However, specific competences for the curricular modules remained to be identified in a more systematic approach. To that end from the international literature the following references have been used as a general orientation:
