Welcome to the accompanying Website for Global Health 101, Second Edition. We are pleased to provide these online resources to support classroom education.

Formerly titled Essentials of Global Health, Global Health 101 Second Edition is a clear, concise, and user-friendly introduction to the most critical issues in global health. It illustrates key themes with an extensive set of case studies, examples, and the latest evidence. While the book offers a global perspective, particular attention is given to the health-development link, to developing countries, and to the health needs of poor and disadvantaged people. Global Health 101 builds on the success of an introductory global health course taught by the author at the George Washington School of Public Health and Health Services and is ideally suited for the Association of American Colleges and Universities recommended course by the same name. These online interactive learning tools will help aid student comprehension and retention of the material contained in the text.
