Nineteen students from countries as diverse as Ethiopia and China were graduated this year from the International Masters in Public Health Program (IMPH) of the Hadassah-Hebrew University Braun School of Public Health.

The graduates, who will take on leadership roles in public health within their own countries, join the more than 700 graduates from 95 countries--each an ambassador for Israel as they bring their expertise back to their homelands.

One of the graduates this year, Dr. Ahmad Ali, hails from South Sudan. He is an AIDS specialist and plans to head a national program to raise public awareness about the disease when he returns home.

"We have a great deal of ignorance about Israel," Dr. Ali notes. "Today I can say that it is one of the best countries to live in."
