SSPH+ Lugano Summer School in Public Health Policy, Economics and Management

The SSPH+ Lugano Summer School is jointly organized by SSPH+, the Università della Svizzera Italiana (USI) and the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute (Swiss TPH).

At the SSPH+ Lugano Summer School (LSS) public health professionals, researchers and graduate students learn together through mutual exchange in a stimulating and beautiful environment. The LSS places health, disease, and health systems thinking under one common framework of coherent concepts and practical implications. The focus on public health policy, economics, management, and communication combined with the diversity of students (~120 from >30 countries each year) and facilitators has provided for a rich learning environment for over two decades so far. The education obtained and networks created serve as an opportunity to reduce and prevent the gap between public health theory and practice.

The support of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) is key, enabling professionals from Eastern Europe, Africa, and Asia to participate and share their knowledge and skills required to manage health systems and health service. The SDC scholarship program is managed by Swiss TPH.
