Study Public Health In Lugano
A week full of meaningful exchanges
We have a full curriculum of courses and plenaries for you. Plenaries are open to the public, free of charge, and we invite the wider public health community to join us. see the plenary page for details.
Some courses are quite full already, so check the programme page to confirm if there is still space in the courses you wish to join.
We look forward to meeting you soon for a week of mutual learning for change.
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+, the Università della Svizzera italiana, 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.
