“The dual burden of communicable and non -communicable diseases (NCDs) is overwhelming the fragile healthcare system of low- and middle-income countries like India. Compounding the problem are new challenges like environmental pollution, climate change, changing social order and so on. Inequity in access to healthcare is another area of concern. The COVID pandemic has further brought these disparities into sharp focus thereby highlighting the need for an energized public health system that can tackle these myriad problems. The DYPU School of Public Health established in the year 2021 has been envisaged as a centre of excellence with a focus on quality education, impactful research, and meaningful community engagement. With state-of-the-art infrastructure, dynamic faculty and a thoughtfully curated globally relevant curriculum the school is poised for great growth. I wish the school the very best in its endeavor to provide holistic education to public health leaders of tomorrow.”
