By Ians

New Delhi, February 17: Indian public-private health organisation, the Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI) Monday inked an Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the University of Melbourne to improve disability programme.

The MoU is an initiative to strengthen the existing ties between India and Australia in the fields of health. The event was held in the national capital. Sue Elliott, deputy vice-chancellor at the University of Melbourne, said the agreement was a great opportunity for the sharing of expertise between the two institutions.


"This agreement builds on a history of effective public health collaborations between the university, through the Melbourne School of Population and Global Health and the Public Health Foundation of India," she said. "We can expect further great things to come of this agreement as we consolidate and renew ideas for the future," she added.

Some of the other areas that the MoU will focus are a three-year Australian aid programme that will be fed into the establishment of a institute of health and family welfare in Uttarakhand and a flagship course on public health leadership, said Elliott.

Collaborative research, academic exchange visits, and collaborative association in regional and global forums would also be emphasised.
