Welcome to the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health Case-Based Teaching and Learning Center Library!
This page contains a catalog of public health teaching cases, covering a wide range of public health topics – epidemiology; environmental health; health policy; health services management; organizational behavior; social and behavioral determinants of health; and global health, among others. These cases are designed to engage students in real-life situations that reflect issues they will face as public health professionals.
You can search for cases by scrolling through the list below.
Filter your search by clicking on a category or key word to the right.
Some cases are available by email request from the faculty author. A link to their email is provided next to the case listing.
Other cases and teaching notes can be downloaded directly from this site. Teaching notes are protected; if you are a Harvard faculty member or instructor, you will be asked for your Harvard University ID, and will be able to download the teaching note free of charge. Faculty from other institutions are asked to use this order form and someone will be in touch with you to complete your order and arrange for billing. Currently, there is a $3.50 charge per student for use of cases and teaching notes.
Our newest cases will be available through the Harvard Business Publishing website, using the link provided.
