A week full of meaningful exchanges


Dear SSPH+ LSS community,

For the first time in 29 years, we will not be able to meet in Ticino for the Summer School in Public Health Policy, Economics, and Management. The coronavirus pandemic has changed our realities, including the way in which we engage in mutual learning for change.

With this new challenge we face, the SSPH+ Lugano Summer School curriculum and educational experience is perhaps more important than ever before. The challenges faced by health systems and communities, as well as organizations and companies, are like never seen on such scale. We need each other more than ever and thus the summer school will take place. However, we are coming to you!

The SSPH+ Lugano Summer School is going digital and we will hold a fully virtual week of mutual learning for change this August. We will reduce the number of courses offered and focus on some core topics that are most relevant and needed in this new reality.

The steering committee is working on the details of the virtual platform and programme now. We are also considering issues of time zones, internet connections and bandwidth, and that many in our community are currently overloaded with crisis work. We will soon announce more details about our virtual experience and the updated programme here online. We will directly contact all those who have previously enrolled.

And, please know that SSPH+ LSS Team is here for you. If you have any concerns or questions about the curriculum or the new and stimulating training experience, please contact us at info@ssph-lugano-summerschool.ch.

Wishing you, your families, and your communities, strength, safety, and health.

In solidarity,
Suzanne
– on behalf of the Steering Committee and administrative team of the SSPH+ LSS

The 2020 edition is a virtual edition

Join us for a week of mutual learning for change this August, from wherever you are. We will be online with a "virtual" summer school and the courses will focus on some core topics that are most relevant and needed in this new reality. Stay tuned for more information....

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.
