TRIP’s recent work around supporting access to the evidence for low-resource settings (click here) has exposed TRIP to all sorts of new contacts and some amazing people/resources that are already involved in this field. The Open Access Education Initiative (Peoples-uni) is a great example and was designed to help build Public Health capacity in developing countries.
It uses open-source materials and a dispersed group of volunteer course developers, tutors and infrastructure support, to provide low-cost education for capacity building in Public Health. Over the past two years, it has been able to deliver an educational programme to those who cannot afford overseas student fees charged by most universities. The Peoples-uni has developed a set of course modules, which can be taken individually and used to gain a Certificate, Diploma (and soon a Masters) in Public Health.
