Dear SSPH+ LSS community,
Regarding the impact of coronavirus on the summer school: We have not yet made a decision about possible changes to the 2020 programme. We are currently examining options and monitoring the situation. We will provide an update soon.
Please stay safe and take care during this extraordinary time. We know health systems are being pushed to the limit and communities, governments, NGOs, and industries challenged like never before. We send everyone strength and our best wishes. Hoping we see you soon.
Public health policy, economics and management since 1991
Together for a week about Public Health
Practitioners, Students, Researchers & Policymakers
Study Public Health In Lugano
A week full of meaningful exchanges
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.
