Yale-Sudan Partnership to Strengthen Post-Graduate Public Health Education in Sudan
The rise of non-communicable diseases, concurrent with infectious disease outbreaks poses a significant challenge to the Sudanese health system. To successfully address this challenge, we need a cadre of qualified, expert, public health professionals. The purpose of this proposal is to strengthen public health education in Sudan through partnerships between leading academic institutions in the World and in Sudan. We will collaboratively develop and teach an innovative new curriculum focused on advanced applied public health methods to address the need for implementing evidence-based interventions to improve health-related practice and policy.
