Description

This two week, multi disciplinary continuing education course is globally unique in that it brings together a body of technical expertise common to the control of human airborne infections. These include tuberculosis (including drug resistant strains), pandemic influenza, SARS, and selected bioterrorism agents.

Control strategies will range from mechanical ventilation, filtration, and the design and use of space, to the proper application of germicidal UV air disinfection and natural ventilation. The course will include didactic lectures, laboratory sessions, and interactive workshops focusing on problem solving in both resource-rich and resource-limited settings.
