Dear Colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention to a free online course being offered on Occupational Health in Developing Countries. The course provides an introduction to occupational health – a part of public health that is neglected in many developing countries. The course begins on March 7th and would require approximately 4 hours/week of your time for a total of 6 weeks duration.

For further information please visit https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/occupational-health-developing-countries or, contact the Course Director, Dr. Bente E. Moen, Centre for International health, University of Bergen, Norway. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
