Occupational Health in Developing Countries

Bente Elisabeth Moen, University of Bergen

Learn how to work on the issue of occupational health in a low-income setting

Occupational health is a neglected part of public health in many developing countries where industrial activity is increasing.

On this course, you’ll broaden your knowledge of occupational health and learn how to prevent diseases and injuries caused by working conditions in developing countries.

You’ll explore the tasks and structure of occupational health services, workplace risk factors, major occupational diseases and the steps of a risk assessment.

You’ll learn about the role of different actors in occupational health, including employers, employees, health services, and the Labor Inspection.

This occupational health course is designed for anyone who wants to understand how to prevent the development of diseases and injuries caused by poor working conditions in developing countries.

This course is open to anyone, though study in medicine, dentistry, health sciences or natural sciences, and a good knowledge of English will be helpful to understand more complex aspects of the course.
