Understand global blindness and how to plan effective eye care with this online course for health professionals.

This page contains a series of downloadable resources and learning activities from the School's Health Economics and Financing in Low- and Middle-Income Countries course. The material was originally delivered as a short course created for UNICEF and delivered to UNICEF staff between 2006 and 2016. Additional information about the course and its last edition can be found here.

The material is broken down into teaching modules and topic-focused interactive activities. Activities are presented in a variety of different ways ('challenge yourself' exercises, 'check your learning' quizzes) and may be vehicles for delivering content or informal assessment tasks.
