Indian Institute of Public Health Gandhinagar

Abhijeet Saxena (MPH)

“During my bachelor’s in science, I have had minimal exposure to community services with no clarity on future goals. IIPHG provided the concrete base for my learning and developed the motivation to contribute towards society. It helped me to identify what interests me and provided the environment to work towards it. To me, IIPHG is not just an educational institution but also a centre for holistic development. After the completion of my MPH degree, I worked enthusiastically in Bihar for around two years before moving to Swastha Bharat Prerak (SBP) Program (Tata Trust and MoWCD initiative) under POSHAN Abhiyaan as State Lead for Chhattisgarh.’’

After working for more than 4 years with various International NGOs such as World Vision India, Clinton Access Health Initiative, MPVHA (MP Voluntary Health Association), Micronutrient Initiative now Nutrition International, I realized that only with my management and social science skills & expertise, I had a limited access and lacked understanding of the public health field. So, in order to excel my knowledge, understanding and skill set, I applied for the MPH program at IIPHG.

IIPHG, being an esteemed college with committed faculties, gave me no second thought before applying. As a result, I applied for MPH in 2017 and got selected which was one of the most memorable day for me.

For the faculties of the IIPHG, in my words, all are “LIVE THINK-TANKS”, they are the guiding mates, like a friend, elders, parents and help us to be the best version of ourselves professionally. All you need to do is just be proactive, and if you have a THIRST for learning, they will be more than happy to quench your thirst with their knowledge and experiences.

IIPHG encouraged me to get exposure of grassroot Public Health issues and experience first-hand knowledge by choosing Bihar State for my Internship & Dissertation place, under CARE INDIA Organization.
