Social Determinants of Health: What is your role?, BMJ & Future Learn

October 10 to 30, 2016

Today marks the opening of registration for our new MOOC (Massive Open Online Course), made in collaboration with BMJ and Future Learn.

About the Course

This free online course will help you to understand health inequalities and how they are socially driven. We will look at how health is affected by wider determinants and how you can make a difference as a health professional to close the health inequality gap.

Through a range of case studies from high to low income countries, you will gain a better understanding of:

  • social determinants of health;
  • why health inequalities exist;
  • and the role of health professionals and systems in reducing health inequality.

The course lasts for three weeks and runs from October 10 to 30.
