Building Stronger Public Health Institutions and Systems (BIS) - project description

Published Updated

The goal of this new program is to contribute to the building of competent and resilient health systems underpinned by strong public health institutions in 6 countries and through global and regional work.


Summary

The goal of this new program -"Building stronger public health institutions and systems " (BIS) – is to contribute to the building of competent and resilient health systems underpinned by strong public health institutions in 6 countries and through global and regional work.  This program not only provides an opportunity to share knowledge in all directions – strengthening public health here in Norway and abroad. The program vision is to reduce morbidity, mortality and poverty associated with diseases by working in partnership with public health institutions and in line with SDG 3.

As such, collaboration activities will be carried out in three countries where NIPH has a long-standing tradition of collaboration: Ghana, Malawi and Palestine.  In addition, NIPH is also exploring collaboration opportunities to build public health capacity in Ethiopia, Nepal and Uganda. The BIS program further expands upon Norad-funded activities under the Global Health Preparedness Program (GHPP) and Universal Health Coverage (UHC) programs.

The program will also contribute to building public health capacity through global and multinational organizations, like WHO, Africa Center for Disease Control and Prevention (Africa CDC) and the International Associate for National Public Health Institutes (IANPHI).The program is funded by Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (Norad).
