From global pandemics to obesity, 21st-century health threats are increasingly urgent, complex, and intertwined. Success in addressing them has implications not just for human health, but also for the economy and national security. To meet this challenge, a new kind of leader is required. The Division of Policy Translation and Leadership Development trains leaders in all career phases through its Executive and Continuing Professional Education offerings and its Ministerial Health and Finance programs, as well as the National Preparedness Leadership Initiative. Senior leadership fellows mentor and teach students. The new Interdisciplinary Leadership concentration, administered by the Center for Public Health Leadership, complements the HSPH degree programs.
The Division fosters communication among policymakers, leaders, and scientists through its state-of-the art production studio, which webcasts globally and produces programming such as the Forum at Harvard School of Public Health and Decision-making: Voices from the Field. The Division houses the Center for Health Communication (which created the Designated Driver campaign) and the emergency preparedness programs: Preparedness and Emergency Response Learning Center (H-PERLC); and Emergency Preparedness and Response Exercise Program (E-Prep.).
