What is a Virtual Campus?

It is a free, public and open educational platform for all. The virtual campus began operating in September 2014. The goal of the virtual classroom is to improve skills and practices in public health
through innovation and the use of information and communication technologies .

The National Center of Mexico has approved both the “ Gender Equity” course and the ” Reproductive Health” course. Approval is through the General Directorate of Quality and Health Education of the
Ministry of Health, and by the Pan American Health Organization. The content may be uploaded to the PAHO Virtual Campus of Public Health, Node Mexico.
