Centurion - Primary Health Care in India 10 x $3,000 New Colombo Plan grants available

How does a large emerging world power shape its health system to blend the best of western approaches with health care traditions that run deeply through communities? Centurion University and India’s Public Health Foundation bring you a course about India’s primary health care delivery system which
incorporates preventative, promotional and curative services of the modern and traditional systems of medicine, including issues of access and affordability.

Location profile:
Bhubaneswar is an ancient city in India’s eastern state of Odisha, formerly Orissa. Bhubaneswar is the capital of the Indian state of Odisha. It is the largest city in Odisha and is a centre of economic and religious importance in Eastern India. With the diverse ranges of heritage resources, it showcases significant sacred cultural landscape components which have evolved with the support of available natural resource base and cultural trigger.
Although the modern city of Bhubaneswar was formally established only in 1948, the history of the areas in and around the present-day city can be traced to 3rd century BCE and earlier. It is a confluence of Hindu, Buddhist and Jain heritage boasting of some of some of the finest Kalingan temples. With many 6th-13th century CE Hindu temples, which span the entire spectrum of Kalinga architecture, Bhubaneswar is often referred to as a "Temple City of India". Temples aside, there are a couple of highly worthwhile museums, an ancient cave complex and the most varied dining scene in Odisha.
