African Case Studies for Public Health - Volume 2

In this supplement of the Pan African Medical Journal, we introduce the second series of African case studies for public health. The first series was published in May 2017 and included a set of 11 case studies, all based on real public health events occurring in various African countries and all written by experienced Africa-based public health trainers and practitioners. The current supplement introduces 16 new case studies and expands the portfolio of public health functions, health issues and country-specific settings covered in the prior issue. Together, the two series published thus far address a major gap encountered in public health training programs in Africa the lack of problem-based learning exercises that are locally relevant to African contexts. To offset this gap, the Rollins School of Public Health, Emory University in close collaboration with the African Field Epidemiology Network (AFENET) developed a training curriculum and implementation plan for the design and development of context-specific and culturally tailored public health case studies.
