This course is jointly organised by the Epidemiology and public health unit from the Institut Pasteur du Cambodge and the Emerging Disease Epidemiology unit from Institut Pasteur Paris, SISEA and by the REDI centre with the support from the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response of the U.S. Department of Human Health Services.
Date and venue: The course will be held at the Institut Pasteur du Cambodge in Phnom Penh (Cambodia), from Monday 16th to Friday 27th of May 2011 and will be provided in English.
Goals of the course: The course aims to build local capacity in epidemiology and to provide participants with a strong working knowledge of the main statistical techniques used in the analysis of epidemiological data using STATA - one of the foremost used statistical packages in scientific research.
Although participants are instructed in STATA, the basic analytic concepts and techniques covered in the course are applicable to the analysis of data using any statistical package.
Participants: The course is dedicated to people already having some knowledge of epidemiology and basic statistics (e.g. familiar with normal distributions, p-values and hypothesis testing). No knowledge of the STATA software is required, as an introduction to STATA is part of this course.
