Sarah Payne, a former MPH student, was awarded the prize for best oral presentation at the Association of Schools of Public Health forum at the EUPHA conference in November 2012. The presentation was based on her MPH research project (Achieving comprehensive childhood immunization: an analysis of obstacles and opportunities in The Gambia).
Staff from the WHO Collaborating Centre for Public Health Education and Training and twenty students from the Master of Public Health course at Imperial visited multiple UN and humanitarian agencies during their recent trip to Geneva, Switzerland. Over a three day period the group visited Médecins Sans Frontières, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, UN, WHO and Global Fund. Two students – Praise Izinyon and Rachael Williams – presented their mini-projects at the WHO followed by an excellent discussion with Blerta Maliqi, a technical officer for Family, Women’s and Children’s health.
