The Public Health Study Tour (PHST) is a two-week intensive program for public health students to gain experience in the public health sector in Indonesia.

The study tour will provide an introduction to the public health challenges currently facing Indonesia, as well as existing government, international and community-led initiatives tasked with meeting these challenges. This is a unique opportunity for Australian students to hear from leading health professionals, policy-makers and community health workers in Indonesia, and to discuss approaches to health issues with Indonesian counterparts.
