Position Vacant : Research Assistant

Position Code : PHFI/2014/108-ANCHUL

Organization Name : Public Health Foundation of India

Public Health Foundation of India, is a public private initiative that has collaboratively evolved through consultations with multiple constituencies including Indian and international academia, state and central governments, multi & bi-lateral agencies and civil society groups. PHFI is a response to redress the limited institutional capacity in India for strengthening training, research and policy development in the area of Public Health.
Structured as an independent foundation, PHFI adopts a broad, integrative approach to public health, tailoring its endeavours to Indian conditions and bearing relevance to countries facing similar challenges and concerns. The PHFI focuses on broad dimensions of public health that encompass promotive, preventive and therapeutic services, many of which are frequently lost sight of in policy planning as well as in popular understanding.
The Prime Minister of India, Dr. Manmohan Singh, launched PHFI on March 28, 2006 at New Delhi.
