To sup­port ca­pac­ity build­ing of pub­lic health in Africa, China con­tin­ues to train doc­tors, nurses, pub­lic health work­ers and ad­min­is­tra­tive per­son­nel for African coun­tries.

Since 2014, the TPHRC’S one-year In­ter­na­tional Mas­ter of Pub­lic Health Pro­gram, sup­ported by Chi­nese Gov­ern­ment schol­ar­ships, has seen more than 30 African stu­dents, who are pub­lic health of­fi­cials, dis­ease preven­tion and con­trol spe­cial­ists and health pro­gram man­agers, grad­u­ate from this pro­gram, ac­cord­ing to Cheng Feng.

“The pro­gram aims at build­ing a new gen­er­a­tion of global pub­lic health lead­ers in the de­vel­op­ing world, said Cheng, adding that cour­ses such as epi­demi­ol­ogy, health­care man­age­ment, global health gov­er­nance, and health com­mu­ni­ca­tion are of­fered.
