BACKGROUND

Public Health is a discipline which involves acquisition of skills and competencies essential for the practice of health, promotion, protection and prevention of diseases. Public Health is a multidisciplinary field comprising medical and other health-related disciplines.

The University of Port Harcourt School of Public Health was established to bridge current gaps in the training and practice of public health through facilitating the infusion of diverse resources needed for a successful and competitive school of public health. It provides an option of assisting the poor economic climate in the country which had stalmated growth in the staff strength in the traditional department of Preventive and Social Medicine under the Faculty of Clinical Sciences.

Indeed, this School serves the purpose of providing a common platform for congregating highly skilled human resource both within and outside the University of Port Harcourt.
This would provide value-added services beneficial but at minimal additional cost to the University.
