Overview

Hanoi University of Public Health (HUPH) was established in 1976 as the School for Health Administrators with an important task of training health managers at different levels in the state-run health sector of Viet Nam. In the 1980s, the University registered with the World Health Organization (WHO) with the broad name of Hanoi School of Public Health (HSPH) with a vision to become a comprehensive training institution in public health in Viet Nam. It was then recognized by the government and officially upgraded to the University status on April 26, 2001. In April 2016, the school received the Independence Medal No3 after 15 years of establishment.

From Oct 2016, the school has officially changed its English name into Hanoi University of Public Health (HUPH). At the same time, the University moves to its new 6-hectare campus in 1A Duc Thang Road, Duc Thang Ward, Bac Tu Liem district, which is six times bigger than its old campus in Ba Dinh district. The evolution of the name and location represents a milestone in the development path of the school: HUPH is a University - recognized for its outstanding and leading roles in public health training and research, both domestically and internationally.
