About

The Social Epidemiology course offered by Erasmus University Rotterdam. The three main areas to be covered are: the measurement of health inequalities, the explanation of health inequalities, and the evaluation of interventions and policies to reduce health inequalities.

Application of the research methods will be illustrated with historical landmark studies as well as recent examples from the international literature.
