Course Title: Addressing Current, Pressing Global, and Environmental Public Health Challenges in
A new, exciting, interactive course will be offered by the School of Public Health of IUB from autumn semester 2016.
This course focuses on how to operationalize public health field research/practice on the ground in Bangladesh. The public health threat that will be addressed is solid waste management in Dhaka. Bangladesh, world’s eighth largest population is the most densely populated country on the globe. While the potential concerns of achieving effective waste management throughout Dhaka and its surrounding areas will be explored in greater depth through this course, Bangladesh’s population density alone poses some immediate challenges to this end.
This course will also give IUB students the opportunity to collaborate virtually with students in USA. It will be offered Fridays from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm. In addition, field work will also be part of the course.
