PROGRAMME OVERVIEW.

  • CHLP structure and curriculum has been developed through a consultative process involving several community health/public health practitioners. 

  • Framed according to the Indian context and local needs. 

  • Provides an overall perspective to community-based approaches and is guided by the principles of health equity and rights.

  • The programme learning modules will cover 

    • core concepts of community health, 

    • linkages between community health and factors like globalization, climate change

    • current and future community health challenges including COVID-19 and future pandemics

The programme is unique as it encourages participants to explore the social paradigm of community and public health based on community needs and first-hand community experiences. 

Established mechanisms such as Academic and Research Council (ARC) for curriculum design and SOCHARA Institutional Scientific and Ethics Committee (SISEC) for review of research proposals support the programme. Participants will have access to the resource center at SOCHARA, Bangalore and a wide range of partners and networks. Mentorship and a person-centered approach to learning with a justice orientation to health are the core components.
