Why study this program?


Public Health in its multiple forms and functional areas has always remained a priority helping the human race to survive on this planet. In the modern world public health has evolved into an interdisciplinary science based on evidence-based approaches and supported by the advancements in almost all other industry sectors. An enterprise of such a vast expanse and criticality needs leaders with not just technical superiority but a strong foundation in the tenets of strategic leadership and management.
Public Health Leadership is the practice of organizing people, institutions, and communities to efficiently deliver solutions for public health challenges and create a system of continuous upgradation. Leadership is a core and crucial competency factor for working in the public health system. Leaders are professionals with Vision, Prestige, Values and Passion to accomplish individual, organizational, national and international missions. Approbation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by member states of the United Nations (UN) has fixed a new plan for public health action at national and global levels. The improved agenda calls for a redefining of what comprises effective leadership in public health, through a design that reflects the interrelationship of leadership at multiple levels across the healthcare system and its stakeholders in other sectors. This is crucial in the context of Low- and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs) that are facing complex demographic and epidemiological evolution.
Research is another core competence in public health and continuous professional development is mandatory for public health leaders to effectively contribute towards evidence creation for designing better public health systems and policies.
The online Executive Certificate in Public Health Leadership and Research (PHLR) is designed for public health and allied professionals who work and should augment the use of their time while studying and handle the immediate demands of work that require current knowledge and leadership skills.
