Postgraduate Programme

mph1Advancing knowledge and training for future of healthcare in an ever-changing environment.

An important feature of the health transition in Asia is the emergence of a double burden of infectious and increasing non-communicable diseases. The current health care delivery service with over reliance on physician-led diagnosis and management of diseases is appropriate for acute infectious and nutritional diseases. However, it may not be adequate for the emerging health challenges of the continent: the double burden of infectious and increasing non-communicable diseases. Preparing non-physician, health leaders is one of the responses to the current situation as greater investments in prevention and human resource development to manage such interventions are required.

The Jodhpur School of Public Health (JSPH) recognizes the high cost of health disparities and inequities – and their impact on the health status of individuals, communities and nations. JSPH on a larger scale will contribute to the reorganization of primary health-care services, to the integrated prevention and management of diseases, through research and training. Such contributions also include enhancing the human resources capacity to allow more tasks to be done by alternative cadres of health workers.
