The PHAP is a unique opportunity for students in the public health field to build a strong movement of public health practitioners equipped with functional field experience and skills that fit the job market.  

PHAP will enable you as a young person to spend between two to three months exploring public health needs and issues that you feel passionate about within your communities. PHAP is purposed to turn young people into advocates, activists, champions and change agents by empowering them with information and skills on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights, HIV/AIDS, Water, Hygiene and Management, Human Rights, Project Planning and Management, Evidence-Based Advocacy, Communication, Social Entrepreneurship and Critical thinking using a problem-solving and learning environment. In addition to the above, you will also gain leadership skills, networking skills, analytical skills, interpersonal skills and teamwork skills.

Those who take part in this program will use it as a platform to share their voices and experiences on public health issues; connect with passionate young people from across the country; and build sustainable networks to make a lasting impact in your community.


Public Health Ambassadors Program (PHAP) focuses on the fact that there are so many young people who are talented, motivated and committed to bringing about change within their communities.

PHAU believes that if we can connect these young people to one another, empower and equip them with skills, points of influence and opportunity, they can transform their communities through developing sustainable innovations that can positively promote better healthy livelihoods.

With young people leading the public health movement, PHAU is committed to building the skills and power of public health activists, advocates and change-makers around the nation.


PHAP is open to young people, male and female, between 18 to 30 years, pursuing a Public health related course, regardless of their faith, background or ethnicity, who face real challenges within their community and want to bring about positive change.
The program exposed me to practices in public health that I only studied in class. It is very practical and informative.
Engaging, fun, informative. I got to work on real projects with the various communities PHAU works in. I made me fall in love with Public Health more.
