Hadassah Shares Expertise in Public Health with Nepal Colleagues

Dr. Yehudah Neumark, Hadassah University Medical Center Senior Lecturer of Epidemiology and Director of the International Masters in Public Health Program (IMPH) of the Hadassah-Hebrew University Braun School of Public Health, recently presented a week-long workshop in Nepal on Community-Oriented Primary Care (COPC), a public health model developed at Hadassah.

Participating in the workshop were 35 health professionals at Dhulikhel Hospital, located outside of Kathmandu. Dhulikhel runs a network of about 20 rural outreach health centers around the country. "They are interested in applying the COPC to their centers," relates Dr. Neumark. "The workshop was one element in the recently established partnership between Dhulikhel and our school, with funding from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, through the Israeli Embassy in Nepal.

In the plans is a second workshop, specifically focused on community-oriented mother and child health, by Dr. Ronit Calderon of the Braun School and Dr. Lisa Rubin, Director of the Mother and Child Health Department of Israel's Ministry of Health.
