- Global Poverty Mapping Project
This atlas provides examples of the important uses of poverty maps, including: the ability to overlay them with maps of geogrphical features, agro-ecological zones, education, accessibility, services and so on, so as to better understand and analyze possible causes of poverty; for better targeting of resources; and for raising donor awareness of financing needs.
- Medicine for Mali
- Population Reference Bureau
(PRB) is an excellent source of population-related data relevant to global health. The data bank includes many tables and graphs in downloadable Powerpoint files.
- Supercourse: Epidemiology, the Internet and Global Health.
Based at the Univ. of Pittsburgh, this source has 2500 lectures by more than 1100 authors. This source may provide useful ideas in your topic area. Supercourse serves a very useful service for a constituency that includes persons in many low income countries. The GHEC modules have a rather different constituency with much better computer and broadband capabilities.
- Tufts Open CourseWare
for examples of what Tufts University is starting to provide, available to anyone at no cost.
- University of North Carolina, “Nutrition in Medicine” series
This is an impressive high-end web based teaching module. It used to be CD-based but in 2005 they expanded it to a web based format. It has Flash macromedia and includes audio, streaming video, interactive quizzes and drop down windows. While too costly for consideration by the GHEC modules project it provides presentation ideas that could be adapted to PowerPoint.

- USAID Global Health E-Learning Center
The Global Health E-Learning Center provides free Internet-based courses that: provide continuing education for health professionals; offer state-of-the-art technical content on key public health topics; and serve as a practical resource for increasing public health knowledge. A colleague IT consultant reviewed this site and reports: The pluses: free, excellent content, GH relevant, well documented. The minuses: Technically the whole page downloads with each click (to go to the next page) which can be tedious; three-column interface is not very attractive; the right side bar with an additional dialogue box was a bit distracting; not easily user modifiable; and likely expensive to produce. However, overall the module is well made and is a good example of an e-learning program
- World Health Organization
- WorldMapper: The Human Anatomy of a Small Planet provides nice examples of how to display information in maps. World social, economic, health and other indicators are portrayed on global maps that reflect not the size of countries, but the relative size of their GDP, population, energy use, health indicators, etc.
