Institute of Community and Public Health Charity Profile
The Institute of Community and Public Health (ICPH) at Birzeit University was established first as a unit in 1978, then as a department, and finally in 1998 as an Institute. Its growth and development came in response to the Palestinian community's urgent need for independent and informed health human resource development, research and planning, model building and implementation of health care services locally.
The aim of the Institute is to contribute to the improvement of Palestinian populationís health and its health services by conducting policy and program-oriented research and utilizing evidence generated from the field for teaching, training and the operation of models of excellence in health care delivery that are gradually taken over by others working in health care service delivery locally. Teaching and training focus on equipping health human resources with the concepts, skills and practices that would allow them to improve service availability, accessibility and quality as a matter of basic human right.
