About JSPH

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.
