PublicHealth.Africa and Peoples-Praxis have a strategic partnership due to our shared goals in building public health capacity in Africa. Peoples-Praxis is dedicated to ‘Putting theory into practice’, and ‘Empowering graduates to extend and apply their skills and knowledge towards improving the health of their population’. This is achieved via access to online resources and mentorship to help put public health skills and knowledge into practice. We have collaborated on the development of a set of free open online courses which are available for all to access, and are collaborating on further projects on Open Science.
