APRU Global Health Virtual Case Competition 2022

The 7th APRU Global Health Virtual Case Competition is now open for registration with a prize of US$ 1,000 to the winning team!

In this case competition, APRU students will be given an opportunity to practice critical thinking and problem-solving skills to help solve global health challenges. Teams of 4-6 students will receive a challenge related to a pressing global health problem. Teams will have up to 10 weeks to prepare a 10-minute video in English, proposing a realistic, well-designed, and innovative solution.

We encourage students to consider a balance of innovative yet realistic, evidence-based solutions. Please forward this message to your students or classmates who are interested in global health-related topics.

The 7th Case Competition challenges students to build and strengthen the capacity of the health systems in Fiji to better respond to future public health threats, focusing on vulnerable populations.
