by Elizabeth completed this course, spending 4 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.
Learners who have no background in any health discipline can have little difficulty with this course. The videos cite real-life examples, use several illustrations and simplify concepts. Variation in scenery and dialogues with experts and field workers highly contribute to the overall quality of the material.

As compared to the other global health courses, this course by Dr. Boyd has a lot of videos and lesser readings and that really makes it interesting and easy to follow and complete.
