Epidemiology is a cornerstone discipline in public health. It is the foundation on which public health decisions are made, implemented and evaluated. Epidemiology also serves as the tool for identifying the risks, determining the relationships, estimating the burden of disease, identifying and instituting appropriate prevention and control measures and finally evaluating the public health decisions. This program aims to build a pool of trained public health professionals with a special focus on application of epidemiology in public health.
