The College of Public Health is dedicated to building international partnerships and increasing engagement on health initiatives around the world. Our global health engagement programs promote research collaborations on global health issues, enhance collaborative trainings for health professionals, and provide students with opportunities to expand their understanding of global health through international health-related activities and exchanges.
The college offers experiential training programs for undergraduate, master's and doctoral students from across the globe. In addition, students in College of Public Health programs can participate in global public health practice and research opportunities with local communities through Temple's campuses in the United States, Italy and Japan.
The college encourages and supports global health research through joint projects and scholarship exchanges, as well as the Fulbright Scholar Program.
Existing research projects with international partners include a Ukraine public health systems recovery and resilience initiative. In collaboration with project leader Pact, this five-year, $45 million effort aims to strengthen the government of Ukraine's capacity to respond to public health shocks, sustain critical public health services during a crisis, and expand mental health support to veterans and conflict-affected populations. Additional project partners include the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute, Overseas Strategic Consulting, Ltd., Drexel University School of Public Health, Health Federation of Philadelphia, the Ukrainian Coalition for Vaccination, and the European Institute of Public Health Policy.
