Open Education Resources

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 some of our distance learning modules and case studies, which we have been developing since 2000 for the Master of Public Health, Postgraduate Diploma and Postgraduate Certificate in Public Health, on the CHEPSAA and OER websites.

We are now also sharing our module guides here. You are welcome to use, adapt and share these materials, following Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike license Terms.

Please also note the following:

  1. We are sharing the module guides as they were developed at the time, many of them 10 – 15 years ago. If used today they would need adapting and updating, both in terms of readings and presentation modalities.
  2. These modules were delivered face to face or as a text-based module, with accompanying readings, prescribed readings, and some multimedia learning objects. For intellectual property reasons we are only sharing the module guides here.
