The Faculty of Medicine, Public Health and Nursing, Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM), Yogyakarta, Indonesia invites suitably qualified candidates to apply for a TDR Postgraduate Scholarship available in the International Master Programme in Public Health, with a focus on Implementation Research for the 2019-2020 academic year.
Moreover, the scheme is supported by TDR, the Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases, co-sponsored by UNICEF, UNDP, the World Bank, and WHO (hosted at WHO in Geneva, Switzerland), as well as provides a full scholarship.
In addition, the training will be focused on courses relevant to a career in implementation research on infectious diseases of poverty, including neglected tropical diseases, malaria and tuberculosis. Furthermore, implementation research is a growing field that supports the identification of health system bottlenecks and approaches to address them and is particularly useful in low- and middle- income countries where many health interventions do not reach those who need them the most. Also, the goal of this scheme is to enhance postgraduate training capacity as well as boost the number of researchers in low- and middle- income countries.
