ANNOUNCING: 2004-2005 TAKEMI PROGRAM IN INTERNATIONAL HEALTH FELLOWSHIPS AT THE HARVARD SCHOOL OF PUBLIC HEALTH

The Takemi Program seeks applications for a limited number of fellowships for research and advanced training on critical issues of international health, especially those relating to developing countries. This interdisciplinary program focuses primarily on mobilizing, allocating, and managing scarce resources to improve health, and creating sound strategies for disease control and health promotion.
