Public lecture by Professor Yemane Berhane, appointed honorary doctor of the Faculty of Medicine 2019, with the title Capacity building in Public Health: tertiary education for strengthening health systems in Ethiopia.

Yemane Berhane is Professor of Epidemiology and Public Health and works in Ethiopia. He is head of the Addis Continental Institute of Public Health and an adviser to the Ethiopian government. Berhane’s research domains include child and maternal health, HIV/AIDS, malaria, tuberculosis, nutrition and other high-priority areas of global health. The research is closely connected to the current need for knowledge required to develop, implement and evaluate large-scale interventions and therefore has great significance for converting research findings into policies and programmes. Berhane collaborates with various Ethiopian universities and also with many universities abroad. Researchers at Uppsala University have collaborated with Berhane for 15 years.
