Over its more than 50 years of existence, NOVA National School of Public Health (NOVA NSPH) has played a leading role in the development of Public Health Science.
Through a consolidated and diversified training offer, in student-centered teaching, in close articulation with research, and with a strong connection to practice, the School has promoted, since its creation, the training of a critical mass of highly differentiated professionals. These professionals stand out for their technical, scientific, and transversal skills and ability to act, in different sectors, on the most complex public health issues, in an ongoing changing global context. We develop national and international quality research.
The School leads and participates in competitive research projects, in a research culture guided by public health current and future challenges, focused on innovation and societal impact. The evidence production supports populations' health and well-being and strengths health systems, with the priority being to translate evidence into adapted and replicable solutions in real contexts, from local to global.
At NOVA NSPH our mission is committed to serving the community, through institutional cooperation and intersectoral partnerships, in the reinforcement of skills and lifelong learning, as well as health interventions and policies design, implementation, and evaluation.
