Public health is impacted by a wide spectrum of hazards ranging from physical, chemical, and biological factors. When they interact with people and health system vulnerability factors, people health and lives become at risk. In order to minimize those risks, robust risk reduction measures need to be taken. However, risk reduction cannot be achieved without understanding the causes and influencing factors.
Hence, risk assessment, including risk determinants are crucial for any risk management plans and projects. This course provides a field-oriented, locally adapted training that presents suitable tools and techniques to conduct risk assessments and develop risk management plans.
By the end of this course, the participant will be able to:
Discuss the common public health risks in the region
