Global Health

The APRU Global Health Program aims to leverage the global health education and research of Asia-Pacific universities to address global health issues through interaction with public policy and media. Since its launch in 2007, the program has covered a significant range of topics including emerging public health threats, ageing and chronic diseases, infectious diseases and health security issues. It has engaged academics, policy leaders, media specialists and communities on non-communicable diseases and on global health issues on campus. To intensify communication and coordination in global health, a program hub was created at the USC Institute for Global Health in 2013. The hub has a core advisory group chaired by renowned epidemiologist Prof Jonathan M. Samet, advising and coordinating the program.  Its decisions are executed by the program manager, Dr Mellissa Withers. Decisions on hosting activities are made in consultation with this program core group. For more information please visit the APRU Global Health Program website and subscribe to the quarterly newsletter.
