Public Health Evidence South Asia (PHESA) is an initiative which includes the South Asian satellite of Cochrane Public Health (CPH), based at Manipal Academy of higher Education. Public Health Evidence South Asia aims to meet the public health evidence needs of the South Asian region. Presently, we have grown into an international network with global collaborations, including many universities, public health organizations and NGOs
Our staff and interns have roots around the globe. We aim to partner with various organizations and individuals across subject areas to solve a variety of public health problems faced by low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). We work together to foster a flexible environment which inspires new ideas, debate, change and innovation; with a focus on capacity building in public health research.
