Online teaching materials

Although most of the lecturing in public health in South-Africa still takes place during face-to-face contact, online teaching becomes more and more important. For the Centre for Evidence-based Health Care (CEBHC) at Stellenbosch University I developed online learning packages.

References, please

I recently read an interesting blog post from Tim Parks, an Associate Professor of Literature and Translation at IULM University in Milan, on the practice of referencing in academic publications. In my own field of work it is easy to compile a reference list including journal papers, but more difficult if you need to reference (unpublished/draft) reports, factsheets, online data sources etc.

Article on Migration and AIDS & TB mortality

An article that I co-author on the mental health and care use of refugees in the Netherlands has been published.
