  2. Utilise a ‘social model’ of capacity building, with volunteer academic and support staff and Open Educational Resources available through the Internet, using a collaborative approach and modern Information and Communication Technology
  3. Offer education at the ‘train the trainers’ benchmarked to the Masters degree level, for those with prior educational and occupational experience
  4. Provide education that meets identified competences which help with the evidence based practice of Public Health and are action oriented, to assist in tackling major health problems facing the populations in which the students work
  5. Create an educational portfolio including Continuing Professional Development modules and awards of Certificate, Diploma and Master of Public Health
  6. Work with the graduates of the educational programme, and other relevant partner organisations, in teaching, research, implementation of evidence based health policy and advocacy to improve the health of their populations.
