The Global Network for Academic Public Health (GNAPH) participates in activities that will enhance academic public health worldwide. We focus on activities that support our associations’ member institutions and that influence academic public health at the global level.
The This is Public Health (TIPH) Global Grant Program provides awards to academic public health institutions around the world to develop TIPH Global campaigns that increase the visibility of public health in a region outside of the United States. TIPH Global projects promote awareness of public health issues, education, and career opportunities worldwide, with a specific emphasis on local communities.
The Global Network for Academic Public Health (GNAPH) is one of the co-organizers for the World Congress on Public Health in Rome, May 2-6, 2023. GNAPH sponsored five sessions during the Congress. The World Congress serves as an international forum for the exchange of knowledge and experiences on key public health issues, contributing towards protecting and promoting public health at a national and global level.
In 2022, the World Health Organization (WHO) launched Building the public health and emergency workforce: A roadmap, focusing on three key areas: defining the essential public health functions; strengthening competency-based education; and mapping and measuring associated occupations. The Global Network for Academic Public Health (GNAPH) is honored to be a signatory, recognizing that schools and programs of public health around the world will be important partners for countries as they work to implement the roadmap and strengthen the public health workforce.
