On Wednesday the 17th of June 2015, 39 students from the MPH travelled to Geneva for an educational visit organised by the WHO Collaborating Centre for Public Health Education and Training. For three days, students attended talks at the WHO, MSF, UNHCR, the UN and Global Fund. They learnt about the work of international health organisations and attended talks on health systems and innovation, the global observatory on health R&D, evidence-informed policy, health system financing and the global burden of NCDs. They had the opportunity to meet public health experts such as Dr Najeeb al Shorbaji and Nicola Magrini. Students were extremely pleased with the trip and they returned to London with an unforgetable experience, advice about their future careers, and connections with key public health leaders.
