Soon after inception of PHFI, three Indian Institutes of Public Health (IIPHs), one each in Gandhinagar (Gujarat), Hyderabad (Telangana) and Delhi-NCR were operationalized in 2008. Later two more IIPHs were added, one at Bhubaneswar (Odisha) in 2010 and Shillong (Meghalaya) in 2015. Besides, an ancillary centre has been established in Bengaluru (Karnataka) with the State Government. More such activities are envisaged across the country in the near future. These institutes established under the aegis of the Foundation, offer on-campus and eLearning academic programs and short-term trainings in various public health domains and are engaged in program and policy relevant research.
The IIPHs have been created with the vision of becoming benchmarks in teaching, training and research in the public health arena. Their chief task is to educate and nurture human resources by providing quality training, to graduates from different disciplines, in various public health domains thus contributing to overall national health goals.
Each IIPH works closely with state governments to conduct research relevant to the home state and surrounding regions. They aim to make education and research activities relevant in content and context to all of India, while attaining standards which are qualitatively comparable with the best in the world.
Our programmes are world class in scientific content, delivery and most appropriate to the conditions of developing countries. The curriculum of each course is continuously updated to incorporate the latest advances in public health and to meet the changing needs of the students.
We have highly qualified faculty with diverse experience. Their expertise is being put to good use in research, teaching and the practice of public health.
The academic programmes are a crucial channel of PHFI’s mandate, which is to address the worrying shortage of trained and qualified human resources. Our priority is to build a strong public health system across the length and breadth of India.Academic Programmes Brochure 2020-21 eLearning Programs Brochure 2021-22 National Education Policy 2020
