KIIT University has been engaged in various research activities in public health domain.

A decision has been taken to establish the School of Public Health in the year 2015 under KIIT University.

This decision is driven by a situation analysis of

  • India’s public health vulnerability in today’s global village in the context of its huge population, socio-cultural diversity, the epidemiologic transition, and the challenges of triple burden of disease
  • Performance of India’s vast net work of public and private health infrastructure at primary, secondary, and tertiary level
  • Country scenario of public health education system, the requirement and shortage of public health professionals, and the competency level they need to tackle the complex public health challenges of 21st century
  • Policy directives under National Health Policy (NHP), National Health Research Policy(NHRP), National Health Mission (NHM) and Universal Health Coverage (UHC).
