Меѓународна постдипломска стипендија „WHO/TDR“


The James P. Grant School of Public Health (JPGSPH) at BRAC University in Dhaka, Bangladesh is accepting applications for TDR International Post Graduate Training Scheme Master of Public Health (MPH) Programme 2018-19 beginning in January 2018. Taught in English, the MPH Programme is a 12-month full-time programme which promotes problem-based experiential learning.

The scholarships are supported by TDR, the Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases based at the World Health Organization in Geneva, Switzerland, provides full scholarship. Candidates and residents in low- and middleincome countries (LMICs) of WHO South-East Asia (http://www.searo.who.int/about/en/) and West Pacific (http://www.wpro.who.int/countries/en/)Regions are eligible to apply.

The training will focus on courses relevant to a career in implementation research. Implementation research is a growing field that supports the identification of health system bottlenecks and approaches to address them, and is particularly useful in lowand middle- income countries (LMICs) where many health interventions do not address those bottlenecks that impede on scale up and coverage. The goal of this scheme is to enhance graduate training capacity and boost the number and quality of researchers in LMICs. Further information on implementation research is available at www.who.int/tdr/publications/topics/ir-toolkit/en/.

Scholarship Recipients will be enrolled as postgraduate students, and will undertake a Summative Learning Project (SLP) on infectious diseases of poverty which include neglected tropical diseases. The students will be required to register in the TDR Global Platform expected to provide networking opportunities for all TDR alumni and stakeholders.
