Jamkhed Flyer - Global Health Gateway

Take the opportunity
to study health
and development at a world-renowned centre
in rural India, immerse yourself in the real
issues of global health and learn how
communities can be empowered to change…..
In 1970, two young Indian doctors established a
small rural health and development program in
Jamkhed, based on the revolutionary idea that
communities could take charge of their own welfare.
Today, that program has grown to inspire countless
others and become a lasting model for WHO’s
primary health care and development strategies.
