Introduction
Participants will learn the principles of epidemiology and biostatistics and gain skills in using epidemiological and biostatistical tools to describe, monitor and investigate the determinants of population health. The statistical background required to conduct research, describe, summarize, develop hypothesis, assess associations, analyze data, interpret and communicate results will be studied comprehensively. The course targets health care professionals who wish to consolidate their knowledge and skills and increase their understanding of the importance of epidemiology and statistics in public health today.

DURATION
10 Days

COURSE OBJECTIVES
At the end of the course, participants will be able to:
• Use epidemiological and biostatistical tools to describe, monitor and investigate the determinants of population health.
• Gain key statistical background necessary for conducting valid research
• Describe and summarize data
