June/July 2016 Newsletter

We, as Health[e]foundation, can say with pride that we have trained thousands of people in our 12.5 years of existence. Since 2003, when Health[e]foundation was established, more than 17,500 participants have completed one or more of our training programs. We have definitely established ourselves as ‘the one Global Health foundation, which is uniquely dedicated to education and training’.

In addition to delivering training courses and monitoring and evaluating their outcomes, we are engaged in research and analysis of the data collected during and after the training courses.
