The Jindal School of Public Health and Human Development (JSPH) aspires to be a world-class public health institution, in turn becoming a hub for innovation to meet the constantly-evolving and dynamic needs of public health in India, and across the world. In today’s times, following the Covid-19 pandemic, there is global demand for a health ecosystem driven by strong governance, robust operations, impact-driven research and seamless on-ground implementation that drives public health in a positive direction. To enable such an ecosystem, JSPH with its research driven approach and interdisciplinary studies aims to create leaders who can bring thought leadership to create a constantly-evolving, adaptable and sustainable public health ecosystem for India and the world.
Therefore, at this critical moment in history, O.P. Jindal Global University is embarking on a significant contribution to higher education in India through world-class and interdisciplinary public health education in order to provide undergraduate and eventually graduate students with a degree programme that will open up exciting career paths in public health and human development.
The Masters in Public Health (MPH) is highly innovative and specialized programme of study developed by the Jindal School of Public Health and Human Development (JSPH). The flagship Masters Programme being offered by the JSPH consolidates JGU’s extensive engagement in the field of public health in India.
The Jindal School of Public Health and Human Development (JSPH) is the twelfth school of O. P. Jindal Global University. JSPH has been set up to encourage innovative research and establish world-class public health education in India. Being established in 2020, JSPH begins as the world faces the greatest pandemic in a hundred years, the COVID-19 pandemic. With nearly 250 million cases and almost 5 million deaths worldwide, the future of the pandemic is still uncertain. Remarkable achievements have occurred through innovations in the development and roll-out of vaccines, although it is far from certain that this pandemic will be defeated soon or that even worse ones can be avoided. Effective public health responses and prevention are therefore more urgent than ever.
