Empower the Next Generation

The backbone of a functioning health system is the people who work every day for our health and well-being, including nurses and doctors, policy makers, financial experts and community health workers. There is a severe shortage of health workers in many places, especially in low- and middle-income countries. The insufficient number of well-trained health staff impairs the quality of care.

Swiss TPH trains scientists and professionals who are at the forefront of improving healthcare, contributing to infectious disease research and applying their knowledge and practical skills to societies in which they will have the greatest impact. Our education and training programmes provide knowledge and practical skills that prepare graduates to work in global health, thus also counteracting the shortage of health workers.

Our scientists are proud recipients of prestigious scholarships from the European Research Council and the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF). We are committed to supporting motivated scientists with attractive scholarship programmes. Help us to do this!

The Swiss TPH Scholarship Fund

Scholarships are an important tool to ensure that our knowledge is disseminated through education and training in order to address the most pressing global challenges. The Swiss TPH Scholarship Fund is aimed at promising talents from resource-constrained countries who need financial support to participate in our programmes.

Make a commitment now to support excellent young professionals and scientists and enable a person to study at Swiss TPH. Your donation will help our students achieve their education and career goals.
