Vision and Mission


The School of Public Health and Family Medicine is committed to the concept of a healthy population having equitable access to resources and highly competent health care professionals to achieve a better quality of life. Some of the guiding values include: Openness, Social engagement, Mutual respect, Social justice and Lifelong learning.


Cognisant of the social and biological determinants of health, we in the SOPHFM, imbued with the guiding values, strive to employ our skills in knowledge generation and support action to promote health equity by:

  • providing a creative learning environment

  • promoting the provision of high quality health care

  • engaging with health care providers, communities and agencies charged with protecting, improving and promoting family and population health

       so as to contribute towards just social development locally, nationally and on the African continent.
