The Project


UZHELTH is designed to develop the capacity of Uzbek Higher Education Institutions to train public health personnel of various levels of responsibility and autonomy and in the relevant disciplinary sectors in order to enhance the level of human health in the broadest sense.
Using Tuning Methodology, UZHELTH will implement a structured  process of mapping, consultation, restructuring, monitoring and evaluation to assist Uzbek HEIs to reorganize, coordinate, extend and modernize the training offered.
UZHELTH will work closely with the relevant Ministries (Higher Education, Health, Agriculture) to gather insight and promote the necessary legislation or normative changes to make state-of-the-art competence-based Learning Teaching and Assessment in the Public Health sector compatible with Ministerial directive and professional regulations.
Enhancement of single disciplinary areas (Public Health, Medicine, Veterinary Medicine, Food Safety and Environmental Protection, Pharmacy) will lead to the creation of an overall Sectoral Qualifications Framework (SQF), able to coordinate and give direction and coherence to the separate areas.
The UZHELTH Consortium will constitute a sustainable platform for cooperation not only between Uzbekistan and the European partners, but also with related projects and developments in the rest of the world. Through two-way consultation processes UZHELTH will create a structured relationship between the HEIs in their role as elaborators and transmitters of knowledge (education and research), with private  enterprise and public bodies, introducing them as necessary partners in the creation of an efficacious overall public health system.
An overarching aim is to create a coordinated information structure for the Public Health sector in all its valences, able to put actors and stakeholders into immediate communication; and to train health personnel of all levels (technicians, experts, specialists, researchers) to utilize the system effectively.
