Strathclyde Institute of Global Public Health


The Strathclyde Institute for Global Public Health is an innovative collaboration in research and education between the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, UK and the International Prevention Research Institute in Lyon, France.

At the centre of the Institute is a formal programme of research, training and capacity building in lower-income countries via a series of actions including a Master’s Programme in Global Public Health, a unique, high-level activity which merges the strengths of both institutions.

iPRI provides training in Epidemiology, Biostatistics and Public Health and the University of Strathclyde imparts practical aspects of public health for lower-income countries via modules in a variety of topics including Water Supply, Sanitation, Power Supply, Organisation of a Pharmacy, Town Planning, Law and Public Health, Nutrition and Physical activity.

This course contains the theory and practical aspects necessary to improve global Public Health and to contribute to the capacity building necessary for its successful implementation.
