Message from the Chairwoman, Board of Trustees

Dear all colleagues, learners, students and international friends,

Founded in 2001 with a relatively new discipline - public health, the Hanoi University of Public Health (HUPH) is always pursuing and consistent with the objectives to guarantee its high quality and professionalism in meeting the needs of students and the society, enhancing transparency, and encouraging innovation and creation.

The ultimate goal that HUPH is striving to bring to the society is to provide training and education for highly-qualified, dedicated, sufficiently competent, and self-confident human resources for health, thus effectively contribute to the sustainability of the public health network and health care system in Viet Nam.

Currently, HUPH has 11 training programs including 5 undergraduate program (Bachelor of Public Health; Bachelor of Laboratory Technology in Preventive Medicine;  Bachelor of Laboratory Medicine, Bachelor of Social Work, and Bachelor of Nutrition), Specialization Degree I in Public Health; Specialization Degree II in Health Organization and Management; Master of Public Health; Master of Hospital Management; and Doctor of Public Health.

To date, HUPH has completed 12 Bachelor of Public Health courses with nearly 1,500 graduates; 18 Master of Public Health courses, 07 Master of Hospital Management courses, and 34 Specialization Degree I in Public Health courses, which significantly contributed to enhancing the workforce of the health care system in Viet Nam. Many researches have also been conducted at HUPH to provide evidence for policy-making on tobacco control, injury prevention, etc. in Viet Nam.

It is my hope that HUPH website is not only an abundant source for the public to retrieve rich information about activities of the school, but also a friendly, helpful companion for everyone, a bridge connecting HUPH with local and international partners, faculties, staff, lecturers, students, alumni of the school, the community and the society.
