The Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI) is conducting training programs and delivering courses to professionals on various public health streams. The objective of these courses is to provide knowledge and skills to professionals, students and practitioners who wish to learn at their own pace and do not have the time for campus courses. With a focus to impart training to the health workers to efficiently implement the components of health promotion and tobacco control, PHFI is introducing these training programs and courses in the Distance Learning mode (through course modules and e-learning methodology). The training imparted through these programs would then translate into more effective programs on tobacco control and health promotion.
