Chan Tung and Friends Global Community of Health for All Scholarship

On the Donor

In 2022, Dr Chan Tung and his friends (a total of eight donors) with a shared belief in building a global community of health for all, made donations in support of the establishment of an entrance scholarship for young healthcare professionals from low-income countries to pursue public health studies at HKU. It is hoped that after graduation, they would return to their respective home countries and work towards the betterment of the provision of health services.

The Board of Studies of Master of Public Health (MPH) established the Chan Tung and Friends Global Community of Health for All Scholarship to realise the charitable gift that the donors desire to make.

Purpose and Scope
