Strengthening collaborative health initiatives 

The University of Melbourne and the Public Health Foundation of India have signed new Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), solidifying their ongoing collaboration.

A delegation from the University led by the Provost Professor Nicola Phillips travelled to India to sign the new MoU in Delhi, India.

“Signing this new Memorandum of Understanding will strengthen our relationship and continue to grow our global community of scholars and partners,” Professor Phillips said.

“Our two institutions have worked very closely together since the establishment of PHFI addressing global, complex challenges in global health, and sharing expertise and experiences to advance health outcomes in India and beyond.

Both institutions have collaborated on global health challenges, notably establishing the VirtuCare project for inclusive virtual healthcare delivery and hosting a research workshop on the future of digital healthcare in both Australia and India.
