Examples of who might join the Peoples-Praxis mentoring programme:

Ms A has completed her MPH degree in ... and wants to write up her dissertation for publication which she hopes will help her gain a new job. She would like a mentor to advise on this and her further career development. Peoples-praxis can help her find a mentor who has relevant experience, and provide access to a set of online resources on academic writing.

The Ministry of Health in the State of ... in ... would like to have help in building its in-house capacity for evaluating its recent programmes and policies. Peoples-praxis can enrol a group of employees of that Ministry to work through a practical example of an evaluation, led by an experienced mentor, and point to suitable online resources about evaluation methods which they would work through together.

Dr Y is about to graduate as a fully qualified public health specialist, after 5 years of practical experience in a variety of public health environments. She has been promised a job in a department of public health, but since this does not involve teaching would like the opportunity to pass on her skills to others. Peoples-praxis can provide the opportunity to match Dr Y with a mentee who would value help in applying public health skills in practice.
