A large number of diseases are particularly associated with poverty. Where functioning economies, education and healthcare systems are in motion, the prevalence of such diseases diminishes. But when these social components falter, as in times of disaster, economic depression or civil unrest, diseases associated with poverty routinely reemerge. The INMED Diseases Of Poverty Self-paced Course is designed to equip clinicians to prevent, diagnose and treat the most prevalent and unfamiliar diseases of poverty.
