Hawassa University

Hawassa University is the oldest and largest university in the Southern Nations Nationalities and People’s Regional State (SNNPRS) in south Ethiopia. The University offers courses such as Medicine and Health Sciences, Natural and Physical Sciences, Agriculture, Forestry and Natural Resources Management, Law, Business, Humanities and Arts.

A few days ago I had a meeting with about 20 staff from the University. We discussed the current status of collaboration and how to strengthen the collaboration between the Hawassa University and Centre for International Health at the University of Bergen.

I was encouraged to learn the university now is about to launch a Masters programme and a Phd programme in public health. This will be done in collaboration with the Addis Ababa Institute of Public Health.
