IPSI: Public Health Matters Series

The India Primary Health Care Support Initiative (IPSI) was established in July 2020 at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. The Initiative was set up under a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and aims to strengthen primary health care (PHC) services in India, in particular the Health and Wellness Center (HWC) program under the Government of India’s 2018 Ayushman Bharat program. The India Primary Health Care Support Initiative (IPSI) is led by Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi.

In partnership with the Center for Global Health, IPSI recently launched a webinar series ‘Public Health Matters.’ The series is presented by the India Primary Health Care Support Initiative (IPSI), led by Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and AIIMS-Delhi in collaboration with and produced by the JHU Center for Global Health. 

The JHU-IPSI webinar series aims to provide a platform for experts – practitioners, policymakers, and researchers on primary health care to share emerging ideas and evidence on PHC from across the world with the intention to draw attention to innovative reforms and ideas on stronger comprehensive primary health care services.
