SSPH+ Summer School
in Public Health Policy, Economics and Management
31st edition: August 22-27, 2022
At the SSPH+ Lugano Summer School public health professionals, researchers and graduate students learn together through mutual exchange in a stimulating and beautiful environment. The SSPH+ Lugano Summer School places health, disease, and health systems thinking under one common framework of coherent concepts and practical implications. The focus on public health policy, economics, management, and communication combined with the diversity of students (~120 from >30 countries each year) and facilitators has provided for a rich learning environment for over two decades so far. The education obtained and networks created serve as an opportunity to reduce and prevent the gap between public health theory and practice.
The SSPH+ Lugano Summer School is jointly organized by SSPH+, Università della Svizzera italiana (USI), Scuola universitaria professionale della Svizzera italiana (SUPSI), and the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute (Swiss TPH) in Basel.
The support of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) is key, enabling professionals from Eastern Europe, Africa, and other emerging and transition economies to participate and share their knowledge and skills required to manage health systems and health service. Other sponsors and supports from across the world also help the summer school reach and include participants from across the globe and make our aim of Mutual Learning for Change a reality.
