The focus of Public Health Intervention is to improve health and quality of life through prevention and treatment of disease and other physical and mental health challenges that affect the population. This is done through monitoring and research of cases and health indicators and through a promotion of healthy behaviours. Examples of common public health measures include promotion of hand washing, breastfeeding, immunisation and other preventive health measures.
There are several shortfalls that need to be addressed in the development of Human Resources for Public Health Services. After all, Healthcare can only be as effective as those who deliver it. Recognising this need – Berkeley HealthEDU is seeking to address limited institutional capacity in India by strengthening training and education in the field of Public Health.
At Berkeley HealthEDU we are working to strengthen the Healthcare System, enabling Human Resource Development and building capacity in Public Health Systems with our training programmes and workshops.
