International Cooperation

ENSP is becoming, each year, more international. Along the past two decades, it has established technical cooperation agreements across all of Brazil and with several national and international institutions in different areas of health care. Among the highlights of its academic contribution to Global Health, ENSP has been (and still is) conducting courses in several Latin American and Portuguese-speaking African countries, helping to build and develop local Public Health systems and policies. The increasing participation of foreign students in its courses, training programs and research projects evinces the strategic role of international partnership with other Public Health institutes and institutions throughout the Globe.

The Graduate School at Sergio Arouca National School of Public Health (ENSP) offers, since 1977, a diverse, highly qualified educational program, integrating basic research, community-based participatory research, health policies analyzes and applied Public Health research. Additionally, ENSP offers several MPH Programs ('Professional Masters'), nationally and internationally, as well as certificate and specialization courses. These international courses were/are designed under the conception of a "structuring collaboration in Public Health", were academic knowledge is used to build local capacities in the Public Health system.
