  • Prakash Khanal Finland As a Public Health professional working in the communities of developing world, this course is suitable to provide basic yet very informative education for the people who are struggling on a daily basis to come out of these health problems. I would also recommend for this team to come up with some more 'Health Education' sort of ideas or 'Program Management' type of ideas so that it will be easier for those working in this sector as managers or project coordinators. 2014-11-07 10:11:13
