We offer undergraduate and postgraduate training for pharmacists and other healthcare professionals. Training for pharmacists is aimed at developing the role of the pharmacist in public health, including micro- and macro-level activities. Micro-level activities focus on individual health promotion and disease prevention services, while macro-level activities comprise population-wide approaches, including policy formulation, planning and management functions. Our core research fields include all aspects of the rational use of medicines, health systems and policies, vaccination as an important pillar of antimicrobial stewardship, HIV/AIDS, and non-communicable disease management. With our academic programmes and research we aim to strengthen primary healthcare services, improve public health, and contribute towards reaching the sustainable development goal of good health and well-being.
