AUB joins efforts with WHO and the Ministry of Public Health in an unprecedented agreement between academia and the public sector

The Faculty of Health Sciences (FHS) at the American University of Beirut (AUB) once again shows that academia’s contributions go far beyond education and generating knowledge. Guided by research and effective partnerships with key stakeholders and particularly the public sector, these contributions are serving to improve people’s lives through supporting informed decision-making processes. 

In an era of post-truth politics and “alternative facts,” the need for scientific evidence and reasoning in shaping public policies is crucial. Recognizing its role in advancing evidence-based research and good health governance in Lebanon, AUB on behalf of FHS, signed a tripartite agreement with the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) in Lebanon, and the World Health Organization (WHO) to establish the Policy Support Observatory (PSO), which will be physically hosted at the Ministry of Public Health and technically operated by FHS. 

The agreement was announced on April 16, 2018, during a ceremony held at the Ministry of Public Health headquarters in Beirut.
