School of Health Systems Studies


The School of Health Systems Studies prepares students for a leadership role in public health and managerial roles in the fields of health and hospital administration. The School’s active social research programmes and national and international research collaborations in areas of health policy, health systems strengthening and public health contributes to the generation of new knowledge in this area and ensures that its educational programmes are updated to respond to current challenges and emergent trends. An important dimension of the Schools’ educational and research activity is the contribution it makes to developing the understanding of health and health care as a social science. The School is quite often called upon to respond to capacity building and knowledge management needs of the government health sector and this allows it to contribute to developing newer and innovative health care strategies, provide advocacy support for public health and build equity concerns into health policy and planning.
