FHS also contributes to knowledge and the improvement of the public's health in Lebanon and the region by conducting scholarly and relevant research and by responding to priority health issues and training needs in collaboration with stakeholders.

​Moreover, since the voices of the people of the Arab region and the specificities of its public health context were largely absent from international dialogue, The Faculty of Health Sciences in AUB also commits to an advocacy role-serving as a platform for engaging the international community in the public health context of the Arab region, and as a result, influencing the global public health discourse.

Research Centers

We have established an institutional model for impact on people’s health, with three centers to drive our research on population and health, advance public health practice, and translate knowledge to policy. 

  • The Center for Research on Population and Health (CRPH) is an incubator for innovative research ideas and the hub for interdisciplinary research teams and regional research networks
  • The Center for Public Health Practice (CPHP) has established strong ties with communities, governments, and international and local agencies to build human capacity in health, evaluate programs and interventions, and provide evidence-based guidelines to practice
  • The Knowledge to​ Policy (K2P) Center is the first-of-its-kind in the region and the second globally harnessing the best available evidence to inform policy priorities, convening policy dialogues for collective problem solving, and developing capacity to engage in policymaking and action.​​​
