This course provides an introduction to systems thinking and systems models in public health. Problems in public health and health policy tend to be complex with many actors, institutions and risk factors involved. If an outcome depends on many interacting and adaptive parts and actors the outcome cannot be analyzed or predicted with traditional statistical methods. Systems thinking is a core skill in public health and helps health policymakers build programs and policies that are aware of and prepared for unintended consequences.

TOP REVIEWS FROM SYSTEMS THINKING IN PUBLIC HEALTH
I thought this course was top notch - the lectures were very well designed and course production quality was first rate. An excellent introduction to an important subject area.
The course was excellent but Q7. And Q8 is a country perspective and thus my perception does not match with your thinking that is largely based on the model of developed countries.
Nothing short of brilliant! Thank you so much for the knowledge, tools and inspiration to approach complex problems in a way that I can see making a real difference. Thank you!
Great introduction to Systems Thinking as applied to public health problems and policy-making, with some basic hands-on experience in different modelling techniques.
