Global Health Program

Global Health Program’s aim is to train medical doctors, dentists, veterinarians and students of these disciplines in global public health issues, such as health care delivery systems, infectious and non- infectious diseases epidemiology and health care management. The training is mainly done in annually organized three-week certificate courses.

In addition, we arrange web courses, summits and seminars, which are open for all health care professionals and people interested in global health. Our network also provides opportunities for institutional capacity building, teachers' exchange and research projects.

The Global Health Program is an international network of public health oriented organizations in Chile (Universidad de Chile), Finland, the Philippines (University of the Philippines), Nepal (Tribhuvan University) and Tanzania (Muhimbili University of Health and Allied Sciences and Sokoine University of Agriculture).

Unfortunately the Global Health program did not receive further funding from the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland. We are now seeking other funding opportunities for our collaboration. All the GH program events will be announced here at the Global Health website also in the future.

A Global Health course was held in 08.08.-26.08.2016 in Tanzania, mainly in Dar es Salaam. More information >>
