Cette composante de cours CIH est une introduction aux concepts et méthodes d'analyse des problèmes de santé, des interventions et des programmes de santé. Cette analyse permet de comprendre l'importance du problème, son fardeau et ses déterminants. Les aspects théoriques de quatre stratégies d'intervention principales : la lutte antivectorielle, le dépistage, le test et le traitement, les stratégies de vaccination et les interventions comportementales, sont examinés, qu'elles soient appliquées en tant que concept préventif, curatif ou réhabilitatif. Certains défis opérationnels actuels dans la prévention et le contrôle des problèmes de santé clés sont abordés. Les concepts enseignés au cours des deux premières semaines seront appliqués dans le contexte d'une épidémie, à la fois lors d'une enquête pendant une épidémie et pour l'atténuation de l'épidémie.Les concepts, les cadres analytiques et les stratégies de mise en œuvre sont illustrés par des applications dans un large éventail de problèmes de santé : paludisme, rougeole, leishmaniose viscérale, hépatite B, et variole de singe. L'accent est mis sur les pays à faibles et moyens revenus, mais d'autres contextes de pays à hauts revenus sont également inclus.L'objectif global du cours "Problèmes de santé : De la prévention au contrôle" est de permettre aux étudiants d'acquérir une compréhension globale des problèmes de santé et de les doter des connaissances, des compétences et de la conscience éthique nécessaires pour contribuer de manière significative à la prévention, à la gestion et au contrôle des problèmes de santé, promouvant ainsi le bien-être des individus et des communautés.À la fin de la composante 1 du cours (CC1), vous devriez avoir une compréhension globale des différents problèmes de santé et acquérir les connaissances et les compétences nécessaires pour les prévenir, planifier les interventions et les contrôler de manière efficace.En particulier, vous devriez être en mesure de:Décrire l'importance/le fardeau d'un problème de santé particulier en termes de fréquence, de gravité, d'inégalité et de coût économique et le comparer à l'importance d'autres problèmes de santé.Déterminer les différentes étapes de l'évolution d'un problème de santé/d'une maladie, leurs déterminants (sociaux), les modes de transmission (pour les maladies transmissibles)Expliquer le lien entre le modèle épidémiologique, les facteurs de risque et les approches d'intervention Indiquer l'importance des problèmes de mise en œuvre dans la prévention et le contrôle des principaux problèmes de santé, tels que l'acceptabilité, l'identification des groupes cibles, l'implication de la communauté et des patients. Décrire les quatre principales stratégies d'intervention de santé publique en termes d'efficacité : lutte antivectorielle, vaccination, test et traitement, et stratégies de changement de comportementIdentifier les stratégies d'intervention théoriquement possibles - allant de la promotion de la santé à la prévention et au contrôle des maladies, en passant par les soins curatifs - qui peuvent réduire le fardeau au niveau de l'individu et/ou de la population causé par un problème de santé particulier.Détecter une épidémie sur la base de données épidémiologiquesIdentifier les étapes pour l'investigation d'une épidémieDécrire une épidémie en termes de temps, de lieu et de personneDéfinir et planifier une riposte appropriée à l'épidémieCommuniquer les résultats d'investigation d'une épidémie

This CIH course component is an introduction to concepts and methods to analyse health problems, interventions and health programmes. This analysis helps to understand the importance of the problem, its burden and its determinants. The theoretical aspects of four main intervention strategies:  vector control; screen, test and treat; vaccination strategies; and behavioural interventions, are discussed whether applied as a preventive, curative or rehabilitative concept. Some current operational challenges in the prevention and control of key health problems are touched upon. Concepts taught in the first two weeks will be applied in the context of an outbreak, both in outbreak investigation and outbreak mitigation. The concepts, analytical frameworks, and implementation strategies are illustrated through applications in a wide range of health problems: tuberculosis, malaria, measles, hepatitis B, leishmaniasis, mpox, diabetes, yellow fever and COVID-19. The focus is on low- and middle-income countries, but also other contexts of high-income countries are included.The overall goal of the course "Health Problems: From Prevention to Control" is to empower students with a comprehensive understanding of health challenges and equip them with the knowledge, skills, and ethical awareness needed to make meaningful contributions to the prevention, management, and control of health problems, thereby promoting individual and community well-being.By the end of course component 1 (CC1), you are expected to have a comprehensive understanding of various health issues and get the knowledge and skills to effectively prevent, plan interventions, and control them.You should specifically be able to:Describe the importance/burden of a particular health problem in terms of frequency, severity, inequity and economic cost and compare it with the importance of other health problemsDetermine different stages of health problem/disease evolution, their (social) determinants, transmission modes (for communicable diseases)Explain the link between epidemiological model, risk factors and intervention approaches Indicate  the importance of implementation challenges in the prevention and control of key health problems, such as acceptability, identification of target groups, community and patient involvement Describe the four main public health intervention strategies in terms of effectiveness: vector control, vaccination, test & treat, and behavioural change strategiesIdentify theoretically possible intervention strategies - ranging from health promotion, disease prevention and control, and curative care – that can reduce the burden at individual and/or population level caused by a particular health problemDetect an outbreak, based on epidemiological  dataIdentify steps of an outbreak investigationDescribe an outbreak in terms of time, place, personDefine and plan an appropriate outbreak responseCommunicate findings of an outbreak investigation

The course component 4 "Health in Vulnerable Situations" is designed to empower healthcare professionals with the knowledge, skills, and perspectives necessary to address the multifaceted challenges faced by individuals and communities in vulnerable situations. In this course, we focus on vulnerability related to with sexual and HIV health issues, maternal health, and child health. By adopting a comprehensive and integrated approach, the course aims to contribute to improved health outcomes and reduced disparities. Clinicians, nurses, midwives and allied health professionals play a significant role in ensuring the promotion of reproductive, sexual, maternal and child health. You will focus on the specific needs of groups in vulnerable stages of their life-course, including children, adolescents and pregnant women. In addition, you will understand how and why key populations such as men who have sex with men or sex workers, face multiple vulnerable situations. You will learn how to critically assess sexual and reproductive health problems and how to develop an action plan to address priorities in a particular local health system. You will get an in-depth perspective of the challenges to organise combination HIV prevention and a tailored integrated programme approach for children and neonates and their families.  The overall goal is to introduce students to a range of understandings of vulnerabilities which have impacts on health and well-being. We accomplish this goal by following across the life-course using the continuity of sexual, reproductive, maternal and child life stages. In each stage, we identify and analyze the main causes of vulnerability (including biological, socio-economic, all forms of discrimination, gaps in evidence and clinical care provision, health systems) and apply a health system perspective to addressing them. We make extensive use of the case study method to demonstrate practical approaches to addressing vulnerability (of people, populations, situations and health systems), using a range of countries.

IntroductionFiMAB is an international training programme by the Institute of Tropical Medicine and VLIR-UOS (Belgium) that supports the implementation of targeted NGS AmpliSeq assays to strengthen malaria molecular surveillance (MMS) that can guide national control programmes. Through F2F laboratory- and bioinformatic training at the Institute of Tropical Medicine (Antwerp) planned in 2024, young academics of around the globe become familiar with MMS as a key activity to monitor transmission, sources of epidemics and the emergence and spread of drug resistant mutations in the parasite. To provide applicants in background on the subject, we created this digital classroom for the year 2023, which will be used to asses individual progress and participation, one crucial element to be selected for the F2F trainings.In concert with partners in South-America, Africa and Southeast Asia the Malariology unit at ITM has built on sequencing capacity and a surveillance network with leading public health institutions. To this end, the courses aim to transfer knowledge to potential partners in the South and broaden the global alliance by supporting young academic graduates in endemic countries, our Actors of Change.What to do?Below, you can find 4 courses that cover the topics necessary for correct understanding of AmpliSeq. You must learn all, because when using a novel technique it is necessary to identify the field in which it is applied. For this purpose, we go through the challenges in malaria research, the underlying mechanisms, and how AmpliSeq can provide a solution that contributes to the fight against malaria.  How to do?To complete a course, each participant must go through all content. Be aware, that sometimes you'll need to click on images and read pop-ups & subscripts carefully to access all content. When you think you master the course material, go and proceed to the exercises that are at the end of each topic. Each exercise covers open and closed questions, multiple choice, and will be used to grade your participation, motivation and knowledge. Based on these three aspects, people are invited to the F2F Courses organized at ITM, Antwerp in Belgium 2024.LETS GET THIS PARTY STARTED!
