The Institute is jointly sponsored by the world-renowned Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, and the Agència de Salut Pública de Barcelona, one of the major public health research agencies in Europe. With the collaboration of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona, Spain, the Institute serves as a convenient venue for public health professionals to begin or enhance their education with a focus on key health-policy issues. It is hosted by the JHU-UPF Public Policy Center, based in the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona, Spain.
