"Global Health Network Supercourse Project" as www.pitt.edu/~super1

Science Supercourse at the Library of Alexandria - http://ssc.bibalex.org/home/list.jsf


During the next few months we will be presenting global health so that you can understand the excitement of fun of being involved with global health, and being engaged with global health.  The first part of this effort is a presentation that has been seen by 100,000s of people. It was developed by Faina Linkov and a team of experts world wide.

I very  much like this as most people have a very narrow vision of global health and this provides a range of opportunities. Following this as part of our blog, we will discuss how YOU can become involved in Interdisciplinary and international world of global health

This lecture is dedicated to the concept of GLOCAL Health-translation of global health from global to local. Global Health Network Supercourse Project is collaborating with the Library of Alexandria in Egypt to develop one of the largest repositories of Global Health Lectures. On the Pittsburgh side, the majority of the work is being done through the WHO Collaborating Centre for disease monitoring and telecommunications, under the direction of Dr. Ronald LaPorte. Dr. Faina Linkov has been in charge of the development and modifying this. The mission of these  is: 1)Building awareness of global health for faculty and students of medical, public health, and allied health professions; 2) Developing a global health network for students to tackle local to global health problems.  Primary developers: Ronald LaPorte, PhD, Supercourse developer, USA Ismail Serageldin, PhD, Library of Alexandria, Egypt, Faina Linkov, PhD, Supercourse developer, USA Francois Sauer, MD, Supercourse developer, USA

To start to understand global health, it is important to know its definition. WHO defined global health as:  “Health is not only the absence of infirmity but also a State of physical, mental and social well-being”. One of the most important mission of us in global health is to help our families, friends and students to know what health is.


In this day and age health is both Global and Local (Glocal). A case of Ebola can fly to London, Beijing or Santiago in less than a day. To understand how to prevent and cure diseases of the patients in front of us we need to view this in a global context.

Global Health is a relatively new concept.  Research in the global health has become both interdisciplinary and international.  We invite you to join this trip through global health.






“He who has health has hope, And he who has hope has everything” (Arab quote)
