Diploma in Community Health

Diploma in Community Health

Diploma in Community Health aims at producing a health worker who is capable of addressing health issues on a bottom-up approach (i.e. from community to global perspective and critically analyze the related health problems with a view of proposing possible solutions).

The need to develop manpower in this discipline has been necessitated by the fast increasing health problem resulting from ongoing processes like urbanization coupled by the era of emerging and re-emerging infections. For a country to cope with this, community health practitioners who will be able to tackle the issues from grassroots are needed.
