The SOPH alumni programme


The SOPH alumni programme The SOPH has close to 900 alumni from all over Africa, working for equity and social justice in communities, governments, and various organisations, and playing important roles in shaping public health practice. We invite and encourage our alumni to (re-)connect with us and with each other.

We invite and encourage our alumni to
(re-) connect with us and with each other:

  1. Update your contact details for our database here, so we can send you invitations to events, news and opportunities. Tell us where you are now and what you are doing: send us a short profile and a photo
  2. Connect with colleagues at the SOPH, former class mates and present students on LinkedIn. This is a space to share news, resources and information, ask for and share experiences, insights and advice.
  3. Meet our alumni: as you respond to our call and connect with us, we will share and highlight profiles and details of our alumni on this page. Meet some of them

Our Network

At present the map below is a placeholder, reflecting our alumni numbers in African countries, but not yet alumni from Asia, Europe, the Americas, and Australia.
