Abstract

Different longstanding and emerging challenges for public health have been identified including population ageing, migration, infectious and non-communicable diseases, the environment and climatic changes, increasing risks of misinformation and chronic underinvestment. The multi- and inter-disciplinary public health approach - including biology, epidemiology, biostatistics, anthropology and public policy - raises the need to train experienced professionals in different fields. The education on these matters is fundamental to ensure the human well-being. In the last years, education in schools of public health is changing in response to new evidence-based knowledge, opportunities for improvement and scientific discoveries. In this manuscript the current scenario of teaching Hygiene in all the Italian degree courses in Biology were reviewed and summarized and the most excellent examples of academic training offer of Public Health for Biologists worldwide were provided and discussed as a source of inspiration for novel Masters and PhD degree programmes in Italy.
