Who We Are

Up until 1992, Zimbabwe faced an acute need for post-graduate level public health training. Most public health posts were filled temporarily by expatriate doctors, mainly Dutch public health specialists under a government to government agreement. In addition, Zimbabwean physicians who did serve in public health posts but went overseas for public health training, frequently found themselves ill-equipped to function in local public health settings on return . In response to these training needs, the Ministry of Health and Child Care (MOHCC) in partnership with the University of Zimbabwe (UZ), Department of Community Medicine (DCM) and with funding from the Rockefeller Foundation ( started a Master of Public Health (MPH) program using the Public Health Schools Without Walls (PHSWOW) strategy.
