History of Collaboration & Participating Centers

The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health has enjoyed a close working relationship with The Agència de Salut Pública de Barcelona (the Public Health Agency of Barcelona) for many years.

This relationship was strengthened in 2003 with the establishment of the first Johns Hopkins Fall Institute in Health Policy and Management sponsored by the Public Health Agency of Barcelona and the Bloomberg School, with the collaboration of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra. With courses offered each year, the Fall Institute has grown to attract public health professionals and students from around the globe to participate in the offerings by faculty from the Johns Hopkins University and the Public Health Agency of Barcelona. 

As a leading international authority on public health, the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health is dedicated to protecting health and saving lives. Every day, the School works to keep millions around the world safe from illness and injury by pioneering new research, deploying its knowledge and expertise in the field, and educating tomorrow’s scientists and practitioners in the global defense of human life. The School’s main campus is located in Baltimore, Maryland, USA.  A Public Policy Center, established in collaboration with the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, is based in Barcelona.

The Agència de Salut Pública de Barcelona (Public Health Agency of Barcelona) is one of the leading research organizations and providers of public health services in Spain. With its outstanding cutting-edge research programs—always with a practical application—the Agència has established itself as a leader in public health practice in Europe.

The Fall Institute will be offered in collaboration and on the campus of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, one of the most prestigious European universities and well known throughout Europe for its Master of Public and Social Policy program (provided in collaboration with the faculty of the Johns Hopkins University) and its Master of Public Health program.
