Learn about health in low-resource settings and how communities can be empowered to change at the renowned Jamkhed Institute in rural India.
Since 2004, the Nossal Institute and the Comprehensive Rural Health Project (CRHP) have run three-week courses on Primary Health Care (PHC) at the Jamkhed Institute in Maharashtra state, India: one course in November/December, and one in January/February. More than 400 students have so far completed the course.
Dates for the 2017 courses:
- 15th Jan – 4th Feb 2017, and
- 26th Nov– 15th December 2017
Jamkhed has been training health professionals in PHC and rural development for more than 40 years, and CRHP has been a recognised best-practice model for implementing PHC since the mid-1970s, when it became one of the model projects which inspired the Alma Ata Declaration.
The course is designed for public health, medical, nursing, allied health, development studies or social work students, and anyone who is keen to learn about health in resource-poor settings.
