Testimonials

I had access to a handful of relevant resources that helped improve my skills in Public health programming and public health leadership. I received enough guidance to make me the changemaker I had always wanted to be in the world of emerging global health priorities.

Majeed A

Public Health 360 Fellow Nigeria

PH 360 helped me sharpen my sense of curiosity and willingness to take initiative. The scope of the program demanded that I learn how to write effectively and collaborate with aplomb with others. I also learned the structure of a proposal, including how to make it SMART-E and create measurable goals with outcomes.

Juliana S

USA

I have been able to create programs and prepare grant applications because of Public Health 360. The program also gives me the chance to learn about other public health organizations. In addition, I now have a better understanding of the public health profession’s professionalism and work ethics. My capacity to use Google Space skillfully and conduct professional team discussions and deliberations among teammates is another area where this training has had an impact on me.

Bernard G

Public Health 360 Fellow Thailand

PH360 has impacted my public health profession by helping me see Public Health from a global perspective, where I can only make sound public health judgments after understanding how public health is run in other parts of the world. Also, Public Health is a team of specialized players that bring valuable expertise to solving public health issues. I have also strengthened my understanding of program design, research, reviews, and ethical considerations when practicing public health.

Beverly K

Public Health 360 Fellow Canada

PH360 created a space for me to develop my voice and further my ambition as a future public health professional, but more importantly, it gave me the ropes I needed to understand the current gap in the field’s practice along international lines. From now on, I am more prepared to consolidate the bridge towards health equity in my own community and beyond.

Driss D

Public Health 360 Fellow Rwanda

PH360 has broadened my knowledge on public health services and has created more avenues and opportunities in my practice as a public health professional. As a future public health professional, I can confidently plan on a health promotion program, speak on a health issue and own my words!

Chimelogo I

Given the opportunity to partake in the Public Health 360 (PH360), has broadened my horizon; I am equipped with sufficient clinical and scientific knowledge, and improved my intellectual and managerial capabilities for prompt response and critical appraisal of public health issues.

Richard K-B

Public Health 360 Fellow Ghana

As a future public health professional, PH360 has helped me develop a wide range of skills that I can use on a daily basis. Not only has the program exposed me to different sectors of public health, but it also helped shape my passion and focus within the field.
