Thank you for providing this course. It is an excellent overview of Global Health, providing really valuable insights on the health of different populations, different geographies and how to potentially address the most urgent issues. Thank you to Prof. Skolnik and the students appearing in the videos. This was really an almost-live classroom atmosphere, highly appreciate your dedication to providing such an engaging course.

RICHARD YOU ARE A VERY GOOD TEACHER THAT PASSES ON KNOWLEDGE CREATIVELY.
I LOVE YOUR CLASS (THOUGH FIRST TIME LEARNING GLOBAL HEALTH) I LOVE THE INTERACTION IN THE CLASS WITH THE STUDENTS AND ESPECIALLY THE UPDATED GRAPHICS WITH STATISTICS.
EVEN WITH NO PRIOR KNOWLEDGE IN PUBLIC HEALTH, ONE WILL LEARN SEAMLESSLY. I COMPLETED MY CLASS IN LESS THAN A MONTH. THANK YOU YALE UNIVERSITY FOR THIS OPPORTUNITY.

Excellent course! Essentials of Global Health provides a comprehensive overview on the key topics in global health. It works well as an introductory course for those looking to learn about global health and public health. Professor Skolnik is clearly an expert in global health matters and has done very well in teaching this course. I would advise anyone interested in public health to take this course.

I really liked it a lot, I didn't know I would be interested in the whole Global Health bizz. yet I was drown to it. I couldn't stop studying, I might pursue another career. I think as a human you are obligated to take care of other people. If I can make an impact like this, I would. So thank you for this opportunity, I am ever so grateful that thanks to you I have found more knowledge.

I cannot praise this course too highly - it is simply superb. The lecturer is brilliant - very knowledgeable, and someone who puts the material across with great clarity and enthusiasm. The 10 weeks are well arranged and providing one works hard, you come away feeling quite an expert on the subject. I have enrolled in quite a few MOOCs over recent years, but this is by far the best.

El curso es muy completo, muy interesante cada una de las clases y la manera en la que está organizado es simplemente maravillosa. No me agradó mucho fue el hecho de que solamente hayan cuestionarios y no otro tipo de actividades y los foros de debate a veces no tienen mucha participación de los otros estudiantes. Sin embargo; he disfrutado mucho este curso.

Overall a good course with a very broad coverage of many different topics. However, there were certain things I did not like, such as the bad quizzes (when there was an answer "all of the above" it is almost always the correct one and I didnt even had to read the question.) and the faked conversations between the professor and the students. Not a fan of it.
by Prim W•
It is a supremely wonderful course. This course outlines the essential knowledge in Global Health and key risk factors from what people get sick, disability and died from, with a thorough analysis with data across regions, gender and age. I would like to thank the instructor for the well - details and interesting lessons.

I found this class to be incredibly interesting and enjoyed the discussion prompts. I felt that the quiz questions appropriately addressed the main points of each week. The instructor was very engaging to the students in the lecture videos and asked questions that were relevant to the course material.

I really love this course and glad I participated in it. A lot of information and refreshing topics. Thank you professor for your impact in the global health and special thanks for the interviews especially Dr Peter Hortez ( he is one of the expert panel in COVID-19 discussion in the cable tv)
by Anton R•
I wish to especially thank the professor. He explained a lot of difficult concepts well and I was enthused to continue and finish this course because of him. This course gave an excellent overview of the salient points pertinent to global health and this serves as a great primer to topic.
by DANIEL M•
Mr.Skolnik kept the course very engaging and light while still being able to deliver key details. The setting in which other students are included in the online course immerses the viewer, making the transition from a regular traditional classroom to an online course as very easy.
by Neo K•
If i may, i highly recommend this course for those interested in Global Health studies and career. I learnt a lot from Professor Skolnick, read from Lancet commission, The Global burden disease compare, the World Health Organization and other entities. It is a good course.

I took this course out of curiosity but the knowledge I have gained is so enormous. The readings, although many help you appreciate the topics in more detail and understand what was explained in the lectures. I really appreciate the organization of this MOOC and its depth.
by AYSHA S•
This is more informative , convenient and Easily available course That is best in a lot of aspects of life either personal, financial or behavioural life. If ever i would have a similar opportunity to get it i will definitely try to approach it in my first possibility.
by Redvers F C•
This course was extremely informative, well presented and enjoyable. I feel that I have a lot more knowledge about global health after taking part in this course and I'd like to thank Coursera and Yale University for allowing me to take part in this superb course.
by Jonathan G•
learned a lot about global health but it seems a lot of these concepts and trends are a no-brainer. Of course, there is a huge problem with obesity globally, but it doesn't state the obvious about how to fix the problem i.e. getting more exercise, nutrition etc.
by Simone P•
Very Interesting course and absolutely recommended!! It would be interesting to make an update by including this latest pandemic...
Corso davvero molto interessante e raccomandato!! Sarebbe molto interessante aggiornarlo includendo anche quest'ultima pandemia
by Ellis H•
Fantastic content, very educational, great teaching and clear explanations. The recommended reading material was relevant to the topic and provided a greater insight into topics discussed in lecture recordings. Thank you for making this resource available.
by Nino G•
One of the best courses I have ever taken. I'm doing MPH at Essex University and Richard Skonlik's "Global Health 101" is the essential reading throughout the first module. This course is very supportive, relevant and essential for health care specialists.

Great experience. It was my first ever online course and I am glad I chose this course. Dr. Richard has a really good grasp on his field of expertise and now I can very well engage in conversations about this topic with confidence and knowledge.
